Cucumbers in Yogurt with Mint


4 medium Cucumber
1 cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt
1 Large Shallots, raw (minced)
1/4 cup Fresh mint
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 to taste Black pepper


Peel the cucumbers and then slice in half lengthwise. Scrape the seeds out of the center. Using a grater coarsely shred the cucumber.

After it is shredded place the cucumber in your hands and squeeze gently over the sink to remove excess water.

Combine the shredded cucumber, yogurt, shallot, mint, salt and pepper. Fold together and chill.

Recipe Notes

This is a take on the Turkish yogurt and cucumber. Think of this as cucumber and yogurt. I much prefer the latter as the cool cucumber and mint is well complemented by the yogurt and I like this more equal balance.
