Preparing the tzatziki -- 5 minutes

Cut the two cucumbers in half and remove the seeds. A very easy way to remove cucumber seeds is by using a regular spoon or a Parisienne drill. Grate the cucumbers, but not too finely. Set aside and let rest in a sieve for about 5 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop the garlic cloves finely. Remove most of the cucumber moist by pressing the grated cucumber against the sieve.
