  2. Add cucumber to a food processor or a blender and puree. Transfer to a clean dish towel or cheese cloth and squeeze out as much of the moisture as possible before setting aside.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, add the remaining sauce ingredients with the exception of the salt and mix well.
  4. Add in a small amount of salt until you reach your preferred flavour.
