Summer Recipe: Quick, Cool Cucumber Sauce for Sandwiches & Salads
Makes about one cup
cup of peeled, grated cucumber (about half of a long, English cucumber, 1 medium sized Kirby, or a small regular cucumber)
- 1/4 cup
plain yogurt (Greek-style or regular)
- 3 tablespoons
Squeeze of a lemon
Salt and pepper
Place the grated cucumber in a mesh strainer set over a bowl. Sprinkle on the 1/2 teaspoon of salt, stir, and let the cucumber sit for about an hour, stirring and gently pressing once or twice to get out some of the moisture.
Combine the drained cucumber, yogurt, and sour cream in a bowl. Stir to combine. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice in and season with salt and pepper.
