Raita is a raw vegetable, yogurt based salad, not unlike coleslaw other than the yogurt for the dressing. There are lots varieties of recipe for this salad, but I like mine with mint. I mentioned about this dish briefly in my previous posting, so, I thought I'd share the recipe, my version, of this very cooling salad.
Cucumber Carrot Mint Raita
- 1 cup shreaded cucumber (squeeze the moisture out as much as possible)
- 1 cup shreaded carrots
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
- 1/2 cup low fat yogurt
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
Mix everything up and chill in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes before serving. Easy peasy ...
This salad goes with just about anything, even just on it's own. My kids love it and it a good way to introduce fresh raw vegetables to their diet. It's good for me too .....
