    Superb. I changed up the texture by shredding the cucumber and chopping the tomato to a medium dice. I used delicious and very healthy sheep yoghurt - it adds a richness and is less acidic. A very refreshing salad!

    Fresh and refreshing - this is a great salad. I made some changes but kept the integrity of the dish. I used long English cucumber, so I didn't bother peeling or seeding it and it looks nicer if you don't! I also made 1/2 of the dressing with only 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, which was perfect for me. Made for wc's Football Pool win for week 3. Thanks weekend cooker! :)

    This is a very refreshing salad with bright flavours and the yogurt dressing really cuts the fat from my normal mayonnaise-based dressings. For me, there was possibly a touch too much cumin but that's just personal taste. I could see using this dressing for all sorts of recipes but next I'll try it with turkey burgers. Thanks for a lovely salad recipe! Made for PAC 2012.

    This was a little too creamy for me....I halved the sauce as suggested by other posters, but it was still too much for me. I thought it overpowered the flavor of the cucumber and tomatoes. I did use fresh parsley and cilantro. I also salted and drained the cucumbers. The cumin added an unexpected element in the sauce, which accompanied the cucumber and tomato very well. I could see adding some diced avocado as well.
