There are various approaches to this. Some people add walnuts and or raisins, both of which are lovely. I grew up with a pared-down version, which I present here.
- 650 g plain yogurt
- Three or four small cucumbers, chopped. (Peel them if the skin is bitter, otherwise leave it on.)
- 1 tsp of salt
- 2 tbsp dried mint
Put the yogurt in a bowl and stir it until it’s smooth.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix them together.
Check the salt and pepper levels. Add more if necessary.
