(or 1 large English cucumber)
(you can use Greek yogurt if you want, but if you already have regular yogurt I would just use that)
(I used fresh dill that I had frozen)
(I also keep extra in my freezer)
red wine vinegar
Peel cucumbers and scrape out the seeds. Use the large holes on a box grater to shred the cucumbers.
If you have a sieve, put the grated cucumber in it over a plate or bowl and use a large spoon to press the extra juice out. Leave it there to drain while you prepare the rest of the recipe. If you don't have a sieve you could just squeeze the water out with your hands.
Chop dill and mince garlic.
In a medium sized bowl, combine plain yogurt, the shredded cucumber, dill, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, salt and a few grinds of fresh pepper. Stir well to combine and let sit at least 30 minutes before eating, so flavours can meld.
