Wash the cucumbers very well and remove the ends. Use a grater or a food processor to grate the cucumbers with their skins on and then set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, garlic, mint and salt. Then gently fold in the cucumbers and mix until everything is incorporated evenly.
Place in the refrigerator for at least one hour before serving.

Persian cucumbers have a sweeter less bitter taste that gives the salad a delicious flavor. However if you cannot find Persian cucumbers any cucumber would work.
If you like your yogurt salad to be thicker in consitency, you can strain the cucumbers and/or use labneh which is a Middle Eastern yogurt that has been strained until it becomes very thick in consistency
