Cucumber Lime Yogurt
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 cups
  • 3 small, seedless cucumbers, grated (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Straus organic Greek yogurt
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 2 tbsp butter, browned (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp coarsely chopped mint leaves
  1. Place the grated cucumber in a colander, and sprinkle 1/4 kosher salt over. Massage the salt into the cucumber and let drain for 20 minutes. Squeeze out as much of the water as you can.
  2. In a small saucepan, cook the butter over medium heat until it smells nutty and takes on a brown color.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, zest and juice of one lime, garlic and most of the mint leaves and most of the butter, reserving some of each for garnish.
  4. Top with remaining mint and drizzle the remaining butter over the top.
