    FloridaNative's Note:

    Raita is an Indian condiment based on yogurt. It is not spicy at all, just very fresh and flavorful. From "Hands-Off Cooking" by Ann Martin Rolke.

      Yummy, yummy, yummy! I liked that this raita could be enjoyed with Indian dishes, but also was great as a sandwich spread. So easy to make and I usually have all the ingredients. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.

      This is soooo light and good, with just the right tang to elevate those hot summer meals. I served this with Naan (Indian Flatbread) and both DH and I loved it - I made as directed, (except half peeled the cucumber as my peel was tough) and added the sliced cherry tomatoes. Next time I might even try adding some finely chopped onions to the mix. Made for ZWT 8 for the Winers, Diners and Chives.
