This delicious fresh Greek dip takes me back to summer holidays every time I eat it – zingy, light and super simple to make. It goes brilliantly with salads, vegetable kebabs, grilled fish or crudités. 

Blend the dill and mint leaves in a food processor, or chop finely by hand.

Slice the cucumber in half length-ways, de-seed and grate it finely. Place the grated cucumber in a sieve and give it a few gentle squeezes with your hand to remove any excess water.

Place the cucumber in a bowl, and add the chopped herbs, yoghurt, lemon juice and garlic. Season to taste, and mix so everything is well combined. Garnish with a few chopped mint leaves, scattered on top.
