Cucumber Mint Yogurt
A refreshingly delicious salad combining yogurt, cucumber, mint, walnuts, golden raisins and garlic. Great as a dip or condiment as well.
- 3 cups plain yogurt*
- 1 medium cucumber peeled
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/3 cup golden raisins
- 1 tsp. dried mint
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder.
- saffron for garnish optional
Peel cucumber. Using a medium grater, grate cucumber over two layers of paper towels. Squeeze excess cucumber water out by gripping corners of paper towels, twisting and squeezing over sink.
Place grated cucumber in a medium serving bowl. Add yogurt, walnuts, golden raisins, mint, salt and garlic powder. Mix well to combine.
Garnish with fresh or dry mint, and saffron, if desired.
*Use any type of plain yogurt you wish: Vegan, nonfat, low-fat, Greek, etc.
