This is ....a favourite recipe Id like to share
Greek Yoghurt Dip
my parents had us over for a BBQ today - they are off to Darwin for a week so was nice to catch up with them before they leave!
I love this garlicky dip, its perfect with lamb or any grilled meat!
*Grate 3 cucumbers - sprinkle with salt and refrigerate for half an hour
*remove from fridge and drain the liquid well, you can even squeeze the cucumber with washed hands if you prefer.
* In a bowl add the cucumber, 500g of thick Yoghurt, 3 cloves garlic (more or less as you prefer - i love garlic), good pinch of dried mint, splash of olive oil.
* Mix well and put in your dip bowl, you can
add more olive oil and dried mint on top for presentation. So good! so easy!!



Thanks to Angela for this week's topic!!
