Cucumber yogurt salad with sesame seeds
What is typical about my salads is, they are all very simple. Most of them take less than 15 minutes to prepare and contain no more than 3 to 4 main ingredients. It is not that I don’t like complicated salads. I do admire all those people who post super interesting salad recipes. I also make some special salads from time to time, but mainly when there is an occasion for that. On a daily base, when I am rushing for somewhere or something, I just prefer to make myself something quickly, simple and delicious. Even when I really like a salad that I saw from a food blogger, I make it a little less complicated and do it in my own way.
Enough with the introduction part. 🙂 Here is what I am talking about, when I say “simple salads”. Just take a look at this pretty little plate. What is in there? That what you see: cucumber, yogurt, sesame seeds. Is it easy? I think a 4 years old child can make it. Is it healthy? If you eat only this, it is not healthy, because it is very low on calories. (You say you are on a diet? Ok, then this salad is really good for you! :)). Is this little, quite cucumber yogurt salad tasty as well? I would just say: Try it out! It has a creamy, yummy, fresh taste. Amazing.
Do you know what will happen when you add some water to chopped cucumber and yogurt? You get the very famous Bulgarian Tarator! Tarator is one of the most loved “soup-salad” dishes here in Bulgaria. You have no idea how honestly I recommend you try this. If you add some smashed garlic and sparkle it with chopped walnuts and dill, then you got it! Your Tarator is ready! 🙂
Take a look an the cucumber yogurt salad now. You could experiment with the ingredients amount. I mean, some people prefer more cucumbers in the yogurt, others want the yogurt flavor to be leading. Some like it more oily, others are on diet. 🙂 Just do it your own way and…what you always hear from me? Don’t forget to enjoy!
