Pour the yogurt into a very fine sieve to let the excess liquid drain off. Keep in the fridge for about four hours. Grate the cucumber with a fine grater and place in a fine colander with a plate and a weight on top to let the juices ran off. Keep in the fridge for four hours. Once time has elapsed, place olive oil, lemon juice, garlic clove and mint leaves in a Protech Magefesa blender and process until ingredients are emulsified. Add drained cucumber and yogurt to blender. Mix at low speed so that the cucumber is only coarsely chopped and traces of it can be found in the sauce. Serve cold.

Tzatziki is a traditional Greek sauce used as an accompaniment to many dishes, such as meats, salads, vegetables, etc.
