A refreshing side salad to any meat dish
Serves 4 side dishes
1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 cucumber, sliced into rounds and quartered
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Combine the yogurt, cucumber, garlic, parsley, mint, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Optional: If you prefer a thicker consistency: Line a colander with two layers of cheesecloth and place it over a medium bowl. Place the yogurt on the cheesecloth and cover the colander with plastic wrap. Allow yogurt to drain overnight.
Optional: Lay sliced cucumber on a plate lined with paper towel; allow to drain 1 to 2 hours.
