A Turkish salad makes an extremely popular mezze throughout the Middle East. It is sometimes served as a cold soup.
Sprinkle the diced cucumber with salt, and leave in a colander to drain for ½ hour. Crush the garlic with a little salt; use more than 3 cloves if you like. Mix a few tablespoons of the yoghourt with the garlic, then add the mixture to the rest of the yoghourt and mix well. Add more salt and pepper to taste. Finally add the mint, whose aroma and flavour make the salad deliciously refreshing. Dr
