Minted Cucumber Salad by Suzie

We had Chicken Tikka again last night and this time I used a different cucumber salad. There are so many ways to make it. This one disappeared so fast it was amazing - almost as fast as the chicken - which is my family favorite.

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. white vinegar
  • 2 T. chopped fresh mint

  1. Peel the cucumbers, cut them in half lengthwise and remove the seeds with a spoon. Chop into small 1/2 inch cubes. Lay on paper towels to drain; sprinkle with salt.
  2. Pat the cucumbers dry.
  3. Combine the yogurt, oil, vinegar, and mint in a bowl and blend thoroughly.
  4. Add the cucumber chunks and mix.
  5. Add a couple of mint sprigs to the top as decoration.


  1. Suzie, this sounds great. I took the liberty of installing a link to your Chicken Tikka. Lucy

  2. Thanks, Lucy! I don't know how to do that!
