The combination of cucumber and yogurt makes a traditional cooling accompaniment to serve with spicy Indian dishes.

1 cup plain thick yogurt (Greek-style yogurt is best)
½ cup finely chopped cucumber—peeled and deseeded
½ clove garlic—minced (crushed)
2 teaspoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon salt

MIX together all ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
