The cool texture of the cucumber and the aromatic scent of the mint swimming in the garlic-infused yogurt is so refreshing. This salad is excellent with kibbi trays, Chicken with Spiced Rice, or Vegetable-Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, to name a few combinations. It is similar to the Greek version known as tzatziki, the Persian variety called must-o-kheyar, and the Indian version called raita.
