1/2 cup thick plain yogurt(Greek yogurt or hung yogurt)
1/4 cucumber peeled, grated and drained
1/2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp lime juice
1 small clove of garlic crushed
1/2 tsp dried or fresh mint
salt to taste

Place a sieve lined with cheese cloth over a bowl. Put 2 cups of plain yogurt (yields 1 1/2 cups of hung yogurt) on the cheese cloth, cover and place in the refrigerator overnight (minimum 4-5 hours). All the water from the yogurt will filter out into the bowl leaving a thick creamy hung yogurt perfect for making Tzatziki.
