Grate the cucumber. NOTE: Some people like to squeeze the water out of the cucumber. I don't do that, and I don't find it necessary. However, you can do it if you prefer. To do so, grate the cucumber, place it in a clean kitchen cloth or a heavy napkin and then squeeze all the liquid out.
Mix the Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, olive oil, dill, and salt in a bowl until well combined. Taste and adjust to your liking; you can add more salt or garlic, if necessary.
Cover and chill for a couple of hours before serving.
