Indian Cucumber Yogurt Salad

When I used to eat a lot of Indian food, my Indian friends would make a delicious yogurt cucumber salad to pair with it. The cool and slight sweetness of it settled the spiciness in your mouth. I have recreated that salad here--100% plant-based. I was able to use Almond Dream PLAIN yogurt, which worked very well! It's a simple recipe and makes a terrific side dish to any hot or spicy meal.
1 large organic cucumber, peeled
1 small container of Almond Dream PLAIN yogurt (do NOT use vanilla!)
Shred the peeled cucumber with a simple flat hand grater (like this one: http://ow.ly/R2zz0A) using the largest shred option
Squeeze as much water out of the shredded cucumbers as you can
Mix with yogurt (entire container) and add salt and pepper to taste.
