A refreshing dish that usually takes place of a plate of salad. Very refreshing on hot summer days. Can be used as an appetizer or as a dip.

I used garlic powder and fresh mint. After grating the cucumber, I only used the pulp and drained the liquid. Also, there isn't any need to add water. This should be a thicker dip. It tastes exactly like the dip available in restaurants and delis in Istanbul.
