This is my Turkish mother in law's recipe. It can be made in advance and kept in the fridge prior to serving.

Good with recipe#32876. I added to taste rather than measure. I used 3% yogurt, English cucumber which I just peeled but did not seed, sea salt, and the garlic.


  1. Firstly prepare the cucumber. Using a teaspoon dig out the seeds and soft flesh from the centre of the cucumber and then use a knife to cut off the skin.
  2. Next using a mortar and pestle crush the garlic with a pinch of sea salt.
  3. Put the yogurt into a bowl and using a grater, grate the cucumber into the yogurt, stir well. Add the crushed garlic and salt paste and mix in well.
  4. Serve with a sprinkle of parsley on top.
