Makes: 10 servings Total Time: 5 min
Category: Side Dishes Sub Category: Other

what you need
  • 2 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded and coarsely grated
  • 2 Tbsp. minced yellow or white onion
  • Salt
  • 2 cups plain yogurt (I use non-fat)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 small tomato, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. finely minced fresh mint or parsley
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. anellini or other small pasta rings
  • Fresh mint or parsley springs (garnish)
  • Cucumber slices (garnish)
make it
Combine grated cucumber and onion in a small bowl. Sprinkle with salt and let stand for 10 min. Drain and squeeze dry.

Whisk yogurt until creamy smooth. Add cucumber mixture, garlic, green onions, tomato, lemon juice, minced mint or parsley, cumin and salt and pepper to taste.

Cook pasta in 4 qt. boiling water until very al dente. Drain and rinse well in cold water, then drain again. Place in a large bowl and cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally to prevent pasta from sticking together. Combine pasta with yogurt mixture. Garnish with mint or parsley springs and cucumber slices.
Notes
More fresh vegetable if needed also can be included. Also cherries and fruits can be used for upper decoration.
