    1. If you have a canelle knife, use it to remove strips of peel along the entire length of the cucumber to give a striped effect. If you don't have a canelle knife use a vegetable peeler to do the same thing. Slice the cucumber into very thin rounds with a sharp knife.
    2. Put the cucumber rounds into a plastic container, add the salt, sugar, dill, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil and mix together gently. Cover the container and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
    3. Just before serving, drain the cucumber and mix it with the yoghurt. Serve in individual dishes with crusty bread.
