  1. Combine the cucumber, onion, and 1 tsp. salt in a bowl. Let sit at room temperature for at least 20 minutes. Drain off the liquid and rinse to remove excess salt. Drain well and taste a few pieces; if it’s too salty, rinse and drain again. In a small bowl, combine the cucumber and onion with the yogurt, cilantro, sugar, and cayenne or Aleppo pepper. Let sit for 30 minutes for the flavors to develop. Season to taste with salt and cayenne.
