This was really nice thanks Trish, very similar to the raitas we make to have with Indian curries and that's what we had it with. I loved the extra herbiness of it though. I found it a bit tart, and added about 1 teaspoon of sugar to balance that. Also found a grinding of sea salt at the table brought all the flavours out.

This is an awesome recipe; the best cucumber and tomato salad I've ever tasted. All the ingredients are in the perfect proportion and combine to make one fantastic salad. I wouldn't change a thing. (BTW, I ate four servings, so you know I loved it!) I made this to go with Recipe#385357, and it complemented the kofta perfectly. Thanks for posting!!

I made this with lamb kebabs--this really complemented them and was very refreshing. Thanks for a great recipe!!
