cucumbers - peeled, seeded and chopped
chopped fresh parsley
chopped fresh cilantro
excellent recipe. a refreshing summer dish. for a little bit of a kick, try cayenne pepper.
I used a tablespoon of "good seasons garlic herb" dressing mix, dry parsley & dry cilantro and this came out pretty good, however, it left a very strong dill after taste. Thanks Traci-
Not exactly what I expected it to be. Needed a little something else????
The something else this needs is a minced fresh jalapeno for bite. I agree with a previous reviewer, less sour cream/yogurt. You can salt and drain the cucs and the mix will be less runny if you need to keep it for awhile.
Good! I do think the cucumber to yogurt/sour cream ratio was a bit off; I would have liked more cucumber in this. I used lime-flavored salt and added some garlic powder. Served inside Quick and Easy Shrimp Fajitas (AR recipe). Thanks!
I've made this several times-tweeking it a little to our tastes. I too used just the yogurt, and added a little minced onion and jalapeno, and lots of garlic powder. Last time we had it on some grilled steak soft tacos and I added a cubed avocado-very refreshing!
This recipe is great the way it is. I used a traditional yoghurt rather than the typical (and much sweeter) American-style yogurt. Fresh veggies are a must. I used cayanne powder since I was out of cumin. Also, I tossed in a handful of chopped green onions.
My mom and husband both agreed- too much sour cream and yogurt, could not taste the flavoring.
It would be helpful to know how many cups of cucumber, two medium was not enough for me.
