The combination of yogurt, olive oil and lemon juice was a nice dressing. Great salad for a warm summer day.

This was refreshing and perfect with my Turkish Chicken Thighs! I forgot the olive oil, but it was very good any way. I'll be making this again soon with all of the cucumbers I've been getting from the farmer's market!
