Directions:
1. The cucumber should be grated with a cheese grater, then strained of it's juices. To strain it, squeeze it really tight by the fistful letting the water run through your fingers or use a cheesecloth.

2. Once as much liquid as possible is out, combine the strained and chopped cucumber with all other ingredients.
