Salad definitely doesn’t have to be boring! This is my own version of Indian raita and it adds some pazazz when drizzled over a simple side salad. It has cooling yogurt, refreshing mint, some warming spices and a slight lemony tang. This is one step recipe is fail-proof.

  • The water is used to thin the dressing dressing out in order to get it to a nice consistency for pouring/drizzling over salad.
  • This goes well over a salad of lettuce, sliced red onion, tomato wedges and mango chunks. For a nice lunch dish you could even add grilled chicken for a filling salad.
