YOGHURT AND CUCUMBER SALAD IN TOMATO CUPS


After a lot of delicious and spicy food in the Easter week I am now in a mood to go for a raw diet. So I am trying out some delicious salads. One of my favorite yoghurt and cucumber salad for you today. This bit crunchy yet smooth salad will pamper your healthy soul for sure.

INGREDIENTS:

Hung yoghurt 1 cup
Tomatoes 3
Walnut pieces 3 tbsp
Grated cucumber 4 tbsp
Spring Onion
(chopped) 1tbsp
Salt and pepper according to taste


PROCEDURE:
Hang the yoghurt in cheese cloth for 5 -6 hours.
Take hung yoghurt in a bowl mix salt, pepper, walnuts and cucumber. Mix it well . Rinse tomatoes. Cut 1/2 inch off the top of each and reserve. With a spoon, carefully scoop out seeds and inner flesh. If tomatoes do not sit flat, trim bottoms slightly as needed. Mound yoghurt cucumber salad in tomato cups and set on lettuce leaves. Garnish with walnut pieces and spring onion.

I am sure you will enjoy this delicious summer salad.

BE HAPPY AND STAY HEALTHY.

Nice article! I think so many people could use to read this. You should look at posting it on Wacanai.com(http://www.wacanai.com/intro). They have really good searching capabilities and you can link your page to their website. It's really easy to find similar articles and they have graphs so you can track how many people are reading and using your info.

What a very nice idea! You can also put a tunasalad or eggsald in your tomato, too. Have a great day!!! Thank you for the nice recipe.
