Perfect for cooling the heat of curry or as a side dish for a BBQ. I had extra apples so I whipped up this raita recipe.
Green Apple Cucumber
- 1 Granny smith apple, diced
- 2 Lebanese cucumbers, diced (leave skins on)
- 1 bunch of scallions, trimmed and sliced thin
- kosher salt
- 1.5 c yogurt
- handful of mint leaves, chopped (optional)
- freshly ground pepper
Combine apple, cucumber, and scallions in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Let sit for at least a half hour and drain, add yogurt, mint and pepper. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
Can be made several hours ahead and refrigerated.
