Persian Cucumber & Yogurt Salad [GF; VO]

Cooling and savory dip or side for any meal!

Quick and easy, 6-ingredient recipe.

Whenever I buy fresh Persian cucumber I love to make the Persian cucumber with yogurt and dry mint salad. Drizzle with olive oil and eat it with pita bread.

My daughter likes to have it with tortilla chips. My other daughter likes to add it to her sandwich, while my husband likes to eat it straight with a spoon.
