I made this to accompany the Quinoa Tabouli as another member recommended. It is the only cucumber recipe that one of my children will eat but it's not a favorite of any of my family members.

I just took the photo and I came to write the review,I turned around and my lovely daughters managed to almost finish I'm only eating what on the bottom,mostly yogurt.There are some cucumbers floating in it.I didn't peel the cucumbers and I used garlic powder for the benefit of my daughters.

This is a huge hit in our home. We make it without garlic, and we add lemon juice and sometimes some lemon zest. I use either Turkish/Greek style yogurt, or strain some regular plain yogurt for a few hours. Because my little girl thinks that she doesn't like cucumbers, I mince them instead of slicing-deceitful yet effective! We especially like it served on mini wheat pitas aside some lemony steamed kale and cannellini beans.Thanks for posting this recipe
