DIRECTIONS

  • Put cucumbers in a bowl or colander and sprinkle with salt and toss; let stand for about 15-30 minutes
  • Put yogurt, sour cream and about 1 cup water into a bowl and blend till smooth (Like the consistency of buttermilk)
  • Add cucumber, scallion, garlic, lemon, jalapeno pepper to yogurt mixture. Use a motorized hand blender to chop the cucumber finer and leaving some small chunks; not to fine though. (A Braun hand mixer-chopper works well for blending the yogurt in step #2 and this step #3
  • Put into refrigerator to chill
  • Serve cold and topped with any combo of fresh dill, mint leaves, chivesà Mrs. Dash spices and/or salt to taste.
