Recipe By:Violet Grillo-Derderian
"Cool and refreshing, this salad is a perfect accompaniment to lamb or rice - or both! You may use mint in place of dill if you wish, be creative."


  • 1 (32 ounce) container plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons dried dill weed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cucumber - peeled, seeded, and chopped


  1. In a medium bowl, blend yogurt, dill weed, garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss in the cucumber. Cover, and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight.
