Cucumber Yogurt Salad


This is a perfect salad for a hot day, or a cooling side dish for a spicy meal.


  • 3 cucumbers
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup plain whole yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


  1. Peel cucumbers and slice very thinly using a food processor or a mandoline slicer.
  2. Place in a medium-size bowl and mix in salt. Cover and refrigerate for several hours.
  3. Transfer chilled cucumber slices in a colander and drain them for approximately 30 minutes. You may want to squeeze the cucumbers or pat them with a towel to remove excess moisture. Either let them drain in the refrigerator, or refrigerate for at least 15 minutes after draining to re-chill.
  4. Peel and crush garlic and mix with yogurt and vinegar. Add cucumbers to yogurt mixture and stir gently to combine.

Serve cold.
