Greek Salad Layered Dip

  • Preparation Time15 mins
  • DifficultyEasy
1 seedless cucumber
Salt
2 cups low-fat Greek yoghurt
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
Freshly ground black pepper
2 small vine ripe or plum tomatos, diced
1 small red onion, diced
1/2 cup pitted black olives, such as kalamata or nicoise, coarsely chopped

Grate the cucumber on the large holes of a box grater into a bowl. Toss with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pour into a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes. Using your hands and working with a bit of the cucumber at a time, squeeze the excess liquid out of the cucumber and place the cucumber in a large bowl. Add the yoghurt, feta, garlic, 1/4 cup of the chopped mint, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper to the bowl with the cucumber. Stir to combine and add more salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a shallow serving bowl.

Toss the tomatoes, red onion, olives and remaining 2 tablespoons mint together in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over the cucumber mixture. Serve the dip with warm pitta or vegetable chips.
