Cucumber and Yoghurt Salad recipe

This refreshing salad really makes the most of summer cucumber and is perfect for serving with either Greek or Indian food or when you want something a little different to serve at a BBQ.


  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped mint
  • 200g plain yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Peel the cucumbers. Cut in half lengthways, then scoop the seeds out with a spoon. Chop into chunks.

  2. Mince the garlic cloves. Stir into the yoghurt with the mint and olive oil, then stir in the cucumber.

  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then put into the fridge until chilled.

Add lemon juice if you want a little acidity in this salad. If you want a bit of bite, 1/2 a thinly sliced red onion would also work really well. This recipe serves six.
