Sweet Georgia P's - Cucumber Salad with Yogurt and Mint. I talked about Sweet Georgia P's before. It is a lovely organic CSA based right here in Scituate. We love Rebecca, Joe and their daughter Georgia and have got to know them quite well. We are such fans of the farm and their very delicious eggs. This week was our second week of the CSA for 2012 and we got everything we needed to make this yummy recipe. Hope they don't mind I'm sharing it with all of you!
Sweet Georgia P's Cucumber Salad with Yogurt and Mint
2 cucumbers, peeled in strips, seeded and diced
1 bunch of scallions, cleaned and thinly sliced
2 limes, juiced
4 sprigs fresh mint, picked and coarsely chopped
1 Tb honey or agave
⅔ C greek yogurt
to taste kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Half peel the cucumbers in stripes, leaving half the skin on for color and texture. Split the cukes in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds and cut into a medium dice. In a large mixing bowl, combine diced cucumbers with sliced scallions, lime juice, fresh mint and a drizzle of honey (or agave if available). Season well with salt and pepper. Mix in greek yogurt and allow to sit, refrigerated for 1-2 hours.
I know you will love it! It really reminds me of the cucumber salad they serve at Indian restaurants in England. Such a nice mix with popadums. Conor absolutely loved it. Here he is dipping some chips in:
Last night we had it with turkey kielbasa, fresh veggies and chips. I've also heard this dip is nice with burgers or grilled fish! So much fun to dip into this refreshing salad! Also, a great way to get the kids to eat their veggies :)
