Katie's Yogurt Veggie Salad

Recipe by  

"I'm a huge fan of raita but I always find myself wanting more veggies in it. So over time I developed this recipe. It's high in protein and tastes great. I've largely given up on dipping anything in it. I just eat it by the spoonful. The recipe takes a while, but it makes enough to merit it."

Directions

  1. Spoon yogurt into a cheesecloth-lined colander; set aside until most of water has drained, at least 30 minutes.

  3. Mix yogurt, cucumber, carrot, onion, red bell pepper, celery, parsley, lemon juice, mint, and cumin in a bowl; season with salt and black pepper. Refrigerate for flavors to blend, at least 1 hour.

I'm sorry, I didn't like this as much as I thought I would. I love raita, so this recipe sounded like a nice twist on that. I ate it the first night with some roti and it made for a nice light summer meal. Today I brought some for lunch, planning to eat it "by the spoonful" as suggested by the recipe submitter. I really didn't enjoy it on its own, and only ate a couple spoonfuls. The flavor was very strong and sour because of all the yogurt. I made the recipe exactly as written. In my opinion, there is an excessive amount of yogurt in this recipe. I'd recommend adding more cucumber because I couldn't taste them at all, and using less yogurt. I also recommend eating it as a dip or a topping for kebabs, lamb, chicken or wraps, instead of on its own. Eaten on it's own it's a 1 star recipe - in small quantities as a topping or dip, it's 3 stars. A very healthy recipe though! Thank you for sharing!
