Cucumber Yogurt with Garlic and Dill

Cucumber Yogurt with Garlic and Dill

We love finding new ways to enjoy our yogurt and this cucumber yogurt recipe does just that! If you’ve tried it before, you know it’s quite different from the other yogurts on the supermarket shelf.  This recipe comes from a fantastic cookbook, Garlic, Garlic, Garlic by Linda and Fred Griffith – a simple and savory treat for people trying to get more yogurt into their diets.

¼ teaspoon cayenne powder

salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in medium sized bowl
