  1. Prep the cucumber: Grate the cucumber into a bowl and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of salt. Let sit for 10 minutes, allowing the salt to pull out excess liquid from the cucumber. After 10 minutes, wrap the grated cucumber in a few paper towels or clean towel and wring out the excess liquid.
  2. Combine the drained cucumber, yogurt, lemon juice, pressed garlic and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Top with chopped parsley or mint.
