I got this recipe from my dear friend and neighbor, Brigitte. She always has really good Middle Eastern recipes, and this is no exception. A delightful and refreshing side, it is perfect with a multitude of main dish options.
1 large garlic clove crushed in 1 tsp salt
about 8 fresh mint leaves
1 quart plain yogurt
1 English cucumber or 2-3 Persian cucumbers
Mash the garlic with the salt and chop the mint, then mix together in a bowl.
Add the yogurt, blending well.
Peel and cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then slice them in thin half-rounds.
Fold in the cucumber.
