This cool and creamy sauce has a bit of a kick to it due to the addition of a jalapeno pepper. It is especially tasty topped over spicy foods, slathered in sandwiches and wraps or used as a dip for vegetable and pita chips.


  • 2 cucumbers, peeled and grated
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 cup thick plain Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeno


  1. Place the garlic into a medium-sized bowl, sprinkle with a few pinches of salt and mash well to combine.
  2. Add the cucumber, yogurt, mint, lime juice, and jalapeno and stir the mixture until thoroughly blended.
  3. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow flavors to blend before serving.
