  • 1/2 Vidalia onion, diced
  • Salt
  • 2 cups/500 ml of low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon/15 ml of olive oil

Directions

In a sieve set over a bowl, toss the diced cucumber and onions with 1 teaspoon salt. Let it drain at least 1 hour at room temperature, or cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours.

With flat-side of chef's knife, mash garlic with 1/2 teaspoon salt and make a paste. Add garlic paste to the yogurt mixture with olive oil, lemon juice, dill, and chive. Season with salt and pepper.
