Cucumber Mint Yogurt Salad

cucumber mint yogurt salad

One of my favorite salads on a hot summer day, is this refreshing cucumber mint yogurt salad. This recipe is a traditional Lebanese dish, typically served as part of a Mezze plater. It is called ‘Khayr bi Laban’, which translates to cucumbers in yogurt. The traditional yogurt used is laban, but I prefer the greek yogurt, to provide more protein 😀

I love this recipe, because it is so easy to make and can be adjusted to your liking. You can add any soft herbs you like! I often add in finely chopped chives. Flat leaf parsley, cilantro and basil would also make nice additions 🙂 

I like to use persian cucumbers for this recipe and include the skins, which are a good source of vitamin K. Feel free to use any cucumber you like. Some may require peeling and removing the seeds (English Cucumbers), as the texture would not be pleasant.
