These hot summer days have us dreaming of light dishes that help to beat the heat. This traditional Indian recipe for Raita is a refreshing veggie salad that does just that!
Servings: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 3 cucumbers, seeded and chopped
- 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
Pairs great with our Tandoori Naan!
In a salad bowl, whisk together the yogurt, cumin and paprika. Add chopped cucumbers and tomatoes; toss and chill before serving. Serve with Naan.
When you think of paprika you probably picture the image above. Of course, paprika is actually made from ground dried bell peppers and chili peppers and their 'heat' or hotness will vary.
Though primarily used for flavor, paprika does contain antioxidants and several vitamins.
