  1. Slice the cucumber in half lengthwise.
  2. Using a spoon scoop out the seeds in the middle and discard.
  3. Using a grater, finely grate the cucumber into a mesh strainer over a bowl.
  4. Sprinkle some salt on the cucumber and squeeze out some of the moisture using your hand.
  5. Allow the cucumber to sit in the strainer for 25-30 minutes to drain any more excess moisture.
  6. Discard the water that accumulated in the bowl.
  7. In a medium sized bowl combine all ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Place the sauce in the fridge for at least 1 hour before using in order to allow the flavors to develop.
