This classic Mediterranean spread is easy to make and always satisfying. We love it paired with our AlbariƱo and fresh, homemade pita bread.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 English cucumber
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 3 tsps lemon juice, plus zest from 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tsps fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano, finely chopped
Directions

Slice cucumber in half lengthwise.  Scoop seeds out with a spoon and grate into a bowl lined with paper towels.  Lightly salt and press cucumber to release as much liquid as possible, drain liquid and set cucumber aside.

In a medium bowl, combine Greek yogurt, lemon juice, zest, chopped mint and oregano, minced garlic and shredded cucumber. Add additional salt to taste.

 Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with additional mint or oregano sprigs.

Enjoy with a glass of 2017 Mediterranean Vineyards Albariño.
