This sauce is a wonderful way to balance a spicy element in a falafel pita sandwich, such as a spicy cilantro sauce. It’s also great for dipping toasted pita wedges or vegetables into as a snack or dressing a fresh tomato salad.
Line a colander with a double layer of cheesecloth. Add the grated cucumber and the salt and toss together. Place the colander over a bowl and allow to drain for 4 hours. After 4 hours, rinse the cucumber in fresh water, place on a triple layer of paper towels, and ring the rinse water out..
Combine the cucumber, yogurt, lemon, garlic, dill, salt, and cayenne in a medium bowl. Stir until well combined. Refrigerate until serving.Recipe by Amy Scheuerman
