Sometimes the simplest recipes are the ones we relish. I have been on an Indian cooking kick for a few weeks now and I love making this quick raita (yogurt sauce) to accompany dishes that need a little sauce. I have been making use of all my luscious cucumbers from our garden but any store bought ones will do as well. Enjoy!
1 large cucumber, seeded and chopped into 1/4 inch chunks
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, 0% fat preferred
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced finely
pinch of Kosher salt
Mix the minced garlic and yogurt together until fully combined.
Add the yogurt to the cucumbers and stir to fully coat.
Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, stir and chill for at least 15-30 minutes.
