Place yogurt in a fine mesh sieve resting over a bowl deep enough, so the sieve doesn’t touch the bottom. Strain yogurt for at least 30 minutes, but preferably 2-3 hours.
Transfer yogurt to a bowl and add cucumber, garlic, lime juice, ground cumin, mint and salt. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes before serving.
