The lemon gives this salad just enough of a tang! But, go easy on the olive oil or it over powers the flavor.

We loved this recipe with a few changes. I think the lemon juice made it. I decreased the sour cream to 1 cup and added even a bit more lemon juice. I also agree with the fact that if you use dry mint, you need to be generous. I also added diced onion. I will make this again and again. I also left the olive oil out. Thanks.

Oh my gosh, this is simply fabulous!

Very refreshing. I cut waaaaaaaaayyy back on the sour cream and added a few more seasonings. The grocery store didn't have any mint on hand, so I had to leave it out, but it was still very tasty!

This was very easy and pretty good. I only had fat-free sour cream around (and no mint), and it turned out quite well. It was a bit runny for my taste, so I think slightly less sour cream/yogurt would be better. Also, it tastes *really* good with anything curry!

The hint of mint in the sour cream gives this dish a "sweet & sour" taste!
