This is a basic yogurt salad we had with recipe#430878. I used Balkan (thick) yogurt which I did add some water to, chopped sweet onion, fresh mint, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper and some baby cucumber.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat yogurt well until smooth.
  2. If yogurt is too thick, add a bit of water while beating.
  3. If fresh mint is used, it should be finely chopped.
  4. Add mint, grated onion and cucumber, salt and pepper to yogurt and mix well.
  5. Leave in the refrigerator for two hours, then serve.
