1 cucumber (about 14 oz)
3 cups plain yogurt, preferably whole-milk yogurt
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
4 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
Peel and seed the cucumber. Grate the cucumber and place it in a strainer set over a bowl. Generously salt the cucumber and let drain for half an hour, then squeeze the liquid out. In a bowl, combine the cucumber, yogurt, parsley, mint and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
