Today is Plain Yogurt Day (6-20-09) ... bonus recipe!!

Post  goofygramma on Sat Jun 20, 2009 6:54 am

Yogurt is an old, old food that's been around for centuries, but it didn't become popular in the U.S. until the 1980s. People now eat it for breakfast, lunch, snacks - or even as a frozen dessert. All yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, riboflavin (B2) and protein. It can also be low in calories and fat - just read the label.


*Bonus Recipe*


Cucumber-Yogurt Salad

1 cup plain yogurt
2 large cucumbers
Fresh mint (to taste)

Optional Seasonings:
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
Salt and pepper


DIRECTIONS

1. Peel cucumbers and cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Slice thinly.
2. Stir up the yogurt and spoon it into a mixing bowl. Add some chopped mint plus any other seasonings desired. Mix well.
3. Stir in the sliced cucumbers last. Cover the bowl with saran wrap or foil. Chill for at least an hour before serving.

Robin would probably like this cucumber/yogurt thing. It's middle eastern sounding. She says her mother used to put mint in everything....meatballs, salad dressing, everything.
