Line a sieve with cheesecloth, put it over a bowl, empty in the yogurt, and let it drain overnight. Next day, discard the liquid in the bowl and use the remaining thick yogurt.
Next day, grate the cucumber, and squeeze in a towel to remove excess moisture.
Finely chop the chives or green onion and mix it all together.
