Green salad with yoghurt dressing

This is a great salad for a hot day. Similar to jajiki (aka tzaziki) but without garlic, wth no fat and a few different ingredients. This dish is served a bit more salty than you might normally have, this is necessary to bring the subtle flavours of the fresh ingredients out (but don’t overdo it)… The result is very refreshing and hydrating, great for this summer weather.
