Quick notes

Sit back, relax! There’s something about mint and cucumber that is just satisfying and delicious.

If you’ve ever had a Indian Mint Cucumber Raita, you’ll definitely know what I’m talking about.

You can even enjoy this salad with some Melba toast crackers.

The length of time that you refrigerate the mixture together will result in a deeper and more uniform flavor. 45 minute chill time is ample, but I sometimes let it go longer.

Variations

If you’ve been reading or subscribing to our hcg recipes, you know that I like it spicy. You can always spice up this dish with juuuust a pinch of cayenne.

Another idea would be to add a dash of Braggs liquid amino’s to give it an earthy well rounded flavor. Don’t go overboard though!

We want the cucumber and mint to really shine here.
