Cucumber Raita

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Diann is Cooking

Years ago I found this recipe, but when i went back to the original source recently, I discovered I'd changed it significantly. It's cool and refreshing, but with a bit of heat, as you choose. I eat this as a side or as an appetizer. I'm not specifying servings because this will depend upon use.

Very very good! A friend and I dipped pita chips into this like a dip! Very good! I love the spicy from the cayenne! I garnished with a teeny bit of mint! Thanks for posting! Made for Veg'N Swap 37!
