    PanNan's Note:

    The delicious yogurt dressing in this recipe is flavored with mint, and the salad goes very well served with a spicy meal. It was adapted from a recipe in a Fine Cooking publication. Note: the dressing requires chill time. Be sure to make the salad ahead of time. The chill time is not included in the preparation or cooking time listed.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 3 tablespoons yogurt (use Greek style yogurt or whole-milk yogurt)
    • 5 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
    • salt and pepper
    • 8 cups baby spinach leaves, tightly packed
    • 2 cucumbers, peeled and seeded, halved (lengthwise)
    • 1/4 medium red onion, halved (lengthwise)


    1. 1
      Whisk the lemon juice and honey in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the yogurt and olive oil together. Whisk while adding the yogurt to the lemon juice in a thin stream. Add the mint, then add the salt and pepper to taste. Cover and chill the dressing for up to 24 hours.
    2. 2
      Combine the spinach, cucumbers and onion in a large bowl. Season with a little salt and pepper. Add just enough dressing to moisten the salad. Toss to coat, and serve with extra dressing on the side.

      Great salad - only had one cucumber, but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!

      We loved this salad! The dressing was different & refreshing. I like how the Greek yogurt thickened it (this is a new-ish ingredient for me). Thank you to dd for having mint in the yard. ;) Made for Mike & the Appliance Killers, ZWT9!

      Wow, what a lovely surprise this salad was. So good, so many flavors and wonderful textures. It was quick and easy to make. I loved the spicy dressing. The mint takes it over the top. It was creamy and very refreshing. It made a lovely lunch. Thanks so much for sharing PanNan. I made this lovely salad for Culinary Quest 2014 - for the Suitcase Gourmets.
