Cucumber Salad with Yogurt Dressing WWW

I am sneaking in a quick post. This is our week of vacation so I am off the computer (well most of the time). I did want to get a recipe in for Em's Weight Watcher Wednesday blog. I hope I get this to her in time. Check out the other posts she has there every week, she really gets some nice recipes entered.
So, here is a quick, summer salad that has zero points! Refreshing, cool, crisp but with a bit of a bite. We paired it up with a wasabi tuna burger and an ice cold beer!

Cucumber Salad with Yogurt Dressing
makes 4 servings

1 medium English cucumber, cut into bite-size pieces
1 cup scallions, chopped
1 cup radish, cut into bite-size pieces
4 oz plain fat-free Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp fresh mint, chopped
1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped
¾ tsp table salt
¾ tsp cumin seeds (optional)

In a medium bowl, combine cucumber, scallions and radish. In a small bowl, mix together yogurt, lemon juice, mint, dill, salt and cumin seeds; spoon over cucumber mixture and toss to mix and coat.

Yields about 1 cup per serving.

POINTS® value 0 per serving

Kimi, that salad looks delicious, and brings back soooo many memories. That's very similar to a Polish salad I still eat almost daily in the summer, except we usually use sour cream.

I use yogurt too, because it's much healthier. Thanks for the post, it's beautiful.
