  • ½ teaspoon of salt plus an additional ½ teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 to 3 Tablespoons fresh chopped mint it depends on your preference (you can substitute with dried mint)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped

Directions
  • Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of salt on the chopped cucumber and let sit for approximately 30 minutes to pull some of the water out of the cucumber. Then drain off excess water.
