                         a fine sieve set over a bowl, covered and
                         chilled, for 6 hours
    1      Pound         cucumber -- peeled, seeded, and

    2      Teaspoons     finely chopped fresh dill plus dill
                         sprigs for garnish
    3                    garlic cloves -- minced

 In a bowl stir together the drained yogurt, the cucumbers, squeezed dry between
paper towels, the chopped dill, the garlic, the oil, the lemon juice, and salt to
taste. Let the dip stand, covered and chilled, for at least 2 hours and up to 8

sprigs, and serve it with the pita wedges.
