Creamy cucumber salad
Creamy cucumber salad with garlic and mint is a quick and easy tzatziki style salad, perfect for all the sweet crunchy cucumbers and fresh herbs galore available during the summer months!
- 1 English cucumber
- 4-6 cloves garlic, minced (I used 6 cloves)
- 2 C / 500 ml plain yogurt or Greek style yogurt (I prefer using a yogurt with 5-10% fat content for optimal flavor)
- 4 tsp dried mint
- 2 tsp cracked black pepper
- 1-1½ tsp fine pink Himalayan salt or sea salt (I used 1½ tsp)
Trim off ends of the cucumber and cut in half lengthwise.
Use a teaspoon to scrape out the cucumber seeds (avoid scraping out the flesh), toss the seeds.
Place the halved cucumbers cut side down and cut into 1/8" / 3 mm crescent shaped slices.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
Season to taste.
