I like to eat this with basically any rice dish because it makes for a satisfying meal-in-one with no need for any meat or chicken.
The cucumbers that we have available in the UAE are nothing like the huge cucumbers found in the US. Here we have small cucumbers the size of a pickle.
If you live in the UAE, I like to use the Milco brand of yogurt because it has a pleasing creamy taste and is not tart tasting like regular yogurt.
What is nice about this recipe is that you can add more cucumbers or less or you can add more yogurt if you want. Try it my way first and then tweak it to suit your taste!
My basic rule is to use 1 cucumber to one cup of yogurt.
This recipe will make about four cups.
3 cucumbers, shredded
3 cups of yogurt
1 teaspoon salt
1 clove of minced garlic (optional)
In a medium bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix well.
Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
