4-5 cucumbers, peeled & seeded
1/2 red onion
1 clove garlic
squeeze of lemon
small handful of parsley, chopped
pinch of mint, chopped
1 small chili (optional)
1/3 - 1/3 cup plain unsweetened yogurt
1/2 glass of water

In a food processor throw in the garlic, cucumber, onion, lemon juice, salt, herbs and water - turn on High for 2-3 minutes until everything is chopped nice & fine. Add the yogurt and give it pulse.
Taste & adjust your seasonings. If it's too thick add a bit more water. If the flavor is flat add a bit more salt & lemon juice.
Allow to sit in the fridge for at least an hour or more. At the same time place your serving dishes (cups or bowls) in freezer. Note: The flavors will change and come together as it sits.
Before you serve, give it a good stir, taste again and adjust seasonings if needed.
To serve: use the glasses that were in the freezer & top with extra virgin olive oil. Pairs perfectly with steamed scampi, grilled shrimp or crab meat.
