Lebanese Cucumber & Yoghurt Salad 

Lebanese Cucumber & Yoghurt Salad 

Although this recipe may sound like a dip, it’s actually not. Growing up, my Mum made this (Kh’yar wa Laban, as it’s known in Arabic) often and we loved eating it on its own like you would a salad. It was perfect on those summer days when a warm meal just couldn’t be tolerated! You can of course serve it as a side with other dishes or as a condiment. It’s great with a rice or even as part of a BBQ spread. Here’s the very simple recipe for you! What you’ll need: 2 cucumbers 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves 2 cloves garlic pinch of salt 1kg tub yoghurt (I prefer Greek) 1/4 cup water Method: Crush garlic cloves with a pinch of salt. Slice cucumbers in half, lengthways. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard seeds. Finely dice cucumbers into 1/2 cm cubes. Chop mint leaves. Add yoghurt to a medium sized bowl. To the yoghurt, add the garlic, salt, diced cucumber, mint & water. Mix until well combined. Serve with rice or meat. Or just enjoy it on its own!  ...
