Sometimes I want a super quick side salad that’s different from just greens with vinaigrette. This cucumber mint salad with yogurt dressing is exactly that.
The crisp cucumber, fragrant mint and tangy yogurt make the most refreshing combination. I’ve even added grilled chicken, sliced tomato and crumbled feta to a bed of this salad for a main meal. It’s so easy and so delicious!
The keys to a great cucumber salad are to use good whole milk yogurt (nonfat just isn’t the same!) and a sweet, tender cucumber – like Persian, Japanese or English.
