Recipe Tips:

- - From the recipe you can exclude dill or replace it with mint. Both are optional ingredients.

- - Unsweetened natural yogurt without additives is difficult to find, so you can replace it with sour cream, kefir, yogurt or a mixture thereof. The main thing is that the base is thick, savory and not too harsh taste.

- - You can use not a whole cucumber, but its juice.

- - You can also add olives and ground black pepper to the sauce.
