Place the yoghurt in a large square of doubled cheese cloth. Tie the cheese cloth at the top and let any excess liquid drain for about 4 hours.
Peel cucumbers; remove seeds with a spoon. Grate the cucumbers, then squeeze to drain excess liquid.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper. Add yoghurt, cucumbers and garlic and stir until evenly combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.
