Yogurt and cucumber salad

March 6, 2009  •  Category:



1 large jar of plain yoghurt

several cucumbers, 1 teaspoon of dried mint, crumbled to a powder

2 or 3 cloves of garlic, mashed up with a tad of salt or 1 teaspoon of toom (see post)


Pour the yogurt in a bowl. Beat it a few seconds with a fork. Add the garlic and the mint and the cut up cucumbers and mix it all up. Decorate with a fresh mint leaf if you wish. Enjoy with any meal or on its own with bread or crackers.


I have used celery instead of the traditional cucumbers and I like it a lot with it too! Celery keeps its crunch longer than the cucumbers.
