Yogurt cucumber salad is incredibly simple to make, requiring only 4 simple ingredients. The combination of cucumber and yogurt is creamy and refreshing. The test here is to perfect the balance of all the ingredients. This salad takes only five to ten minutes to prepare and pairs well with endless dishes such as meat, rice and legumes. I love mine on its own as a snack during warm summers days.
This may sound similar to the popular Greek tzatziki dip but I believe it’s different. If you love yogurt, you won’t get enough of this.
