"Serve this cool, refreshing salad with my Lamb Tagine and Moroccan Couscous on this site. Make the salad early in the day and keep in the refrigerator to let the flavors blend and intensify. Add more mint to taste, but do not substitute dried mint; the flavor is just not the same."

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 3 hrs 15 mins


2 hot house cucumber - peeled, seeded and thinly sliced

2 cups Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

1/2 teaspoon white sugar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Add all ingredients to list


1Stir together the cucumber, yogurt, lemon juice, mint, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.

2Footnotes: Note: To make your own Greek yogurt, place 2 1/2 cups of plain, nonfat yogurt in a strainer lined with several layers of cheesecloth. Place over a bowl, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Discard the liquid collected in the bowl, and proceed with the recipe!
