Hi everyone!

This recipe, typical of Greece but also common in Turkey, up to North Africa (Algeria), consists of a cream made of yogurt and cucumbers. Depending on the country, there may be small variations; today we will see the Algerian version.

A fresh and light recipe, it’s suitable as an appetizer.

Let’s start:

CUCUMBER AND YOGURT SAUCE

Ingredients for 4 people: a cucumber – yogurt – 500 g yogurt – 1 clove of garlic – 1 lemon zest- a little bit of chopped mint

Preparation:

Rinse the cucumber and cut off the ends. Do not peel, but grate the cucumber in a bowl and add the yogurt, garlic, lemon zest and chopped mint, all together.

Season well with salt and pepper and keep the bowl cool for an hour.

Mix the mixture in a cup of ice water. Add more water if it feels too dense.

Season the dish to your liking and pour into cold bowls.

For garnish add mint leaves and divide into 6 portions.

Enjoy your meal!
