Middle Eastern Yogurt Manar Cucumber Salad

Ingredients

3 large TSFF Manar Cucumbers, unpeeled

1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

2/3 cup middle eastern style yogurt (Greek and such - not Dannon and the like)

1/4 cup water

1 small clove of garlic, smashed, see note

1/2 to 1 whole serrano pepper, smashed, see note

1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste

3/4 tsp. dried mint - don't omit!

Extra Virgin Olive oil, to garnish


Instructions

Cube the cucumbers (approx. 1/2" to 1"), set aside.

Placer all other ingredients in a medium bowl, except for the olive oil.

Mix well until there are no clumps.

Add the cubed dukes and mix well.

Garnish with the olive oil on top.


*If you don't like hot foods, omit the pepper, but in order to stay true to this particular recipe please do not omit or substitute. I smash my garlic and hot pepper in a mortar and use a pestle, or it could be done in a small food processor, or with an immersion blender, with the liquid added in.
