Chilled yogurt and cucumber soup (tarator)

Tarator, a chilled yogurt and cucumber soup, superb for hot summer days, can also be used as a dip for seafood or a pour-over sauce for cauliflower, etc. (serves 5)


  • 2 Cucumbers, peeled and grated
  • 1 Garlic Clove, peeled and crushed
  • 2 LG cartons of Greek Style yougurt
  • 1/2 cup water (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp dill, chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Chopped walnuts (optional
Directions: Mix the crushed garlic and salt together and add to the grated cucumber. Put the yogurt in a large bowl and mix in the cucumber mixture. Depending upon the consistency and flavour of the yogurt you may wish to optionally thin-down the yogurt with the water. Taste and adjust seasoning. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with chopped dill and the crushed walnuts if using. Refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Yummy!!!.
