One day I added fresh Cucumber and Avocato to leftover Tzatziki (Yoghurt & Cucumber Dip), and that was the beginning of this salad. You don’t need Tzatziki. You need the same ingredients to make Tzatziki, and combine them in a different way. This salad is absolutely quick and easy to make. I recommend to cut Cucumber into chunky bite-size pieces, so that water won’t come out too quickly. This is a perfect salad for BBQ.


4 Servings


1 large Continental Cucumber *about 250g
1 pinch (OR 1/8 teaspoon) Salt
1 Avocado *cut into bite-size pieces

Yoghurt Sauce
1/2 cup Unsweetened Greek Yoghurt
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Sugar
1 clove Garlic *grated
1 tablespoon Olive Oil
1-2 tablespoons Dill OR Mint *coarsely chopped
Black Pepper

  1. Cut Cucumber chunky bite-size pieces, add Salt and combine, and set aside while you are making Yoghurt Sauce.
  2. Combine all the Yoghurt Sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Discard salty water from Cucumber if there is any. Add Cucumber and Avocado to the sauce, gently mix to combine, and serve immediately. *Note: I added extra Black Pepper and some Dill leaves on top.
