to serve: veggies, pita chips, or crackers for dipping
Grate the cucumber.
Strain the grated cucumber either by placing it in a colander and squeezing the liquid out, or placing it in a cheesecloth and twisting it tight until most of the liquid strains out. You will have about half the cucumber that you started with.
In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients, including the strained cucumber, and mix. Season with additional salt or lemon juice, if desired. Serve chilled, or refrigerate and enjoy within 2 days.
