Half a medium Cucumber
The chopped leaves from 4 sprigs of Mint
300ml/½ pint Yoghurt
1. Grate the cucumber coarsely and put it in a colander.
2. Sprinkle it with a little salt, and leave it to stand for half an hour. This will extract extra water, and make the cucumber crisper and slightly pickled.
3. Squeeze the cucumber dry, then add it to the remaining ingredients.
4. Mix well, and refrigerate until needed.
