  • 1 cucumber
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3/4 cup greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tsp dill
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt For draining the cucumber
  • 1/2 - 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice


  • Peel the cucumber and then slice it in half and then in half again lengthwise and scoop out the seeds in the middle.
  • Slice it up into smaller pieces and put them on top of paper towels and sprinkle them with kosher salt and let them dry for a bit. I usually wait about an hour.
  • Squeeze the slices to get out as much moisture as you can, you want them as dry as you can get them.
  • Put these into a blender with the garlic, dill and lemon juice.
  • Mix that with the sour cream and Greek yogurt in a large mixing bowl and add kosher salt and pepper. You’re going to add quite a bit of kosher salt before it tastes right, but you should know-every sprinkle makes a big difference in how the sauce tastes.
  • Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. The longer it sits, the better the flavors will mix, so feel free to make this ahead of time!
