Cucumber Raita

BenevolentEmpress

"Serve this cool, refreshing salad with my Lamb Tagine and Moroccan Couscous on this site. Make the salad early in the day and keep in the refrigerator to let the flavors blend and intensify. Add more mint to taste, but do not substitute dried mint; the flavor is just not the same."

After spending a lot of time in India you learn to loooove raita! But this is definitely not Indian raita. I should have known when I saw the mint, but I figured I'd try it anyway. The only c...
