In my Syrian household, this yogurt is a MUST with the puff pastry pies stuffed with meat and rice! It also goes well as a healthy dip for veggies and by any rice dish that is not part of a stew dish. In Arabic this is called "laban bil khyar" and it translates literally into "yogurt with cucumber" ;) This is very similar to Greek tzatziki sauce and I use this recipe any time I need tzatziki.
-2 cups yogurt
-1 cup finely chopped cucumber
-1 garlic clove, crushed (optional)
-1 1/2 tablespoons dried mint, crushed
-salt to taste
-Mix all the ingredients together and serve with "ouzi!"
