Key Ingredients for Greek Yogurt Cucumber Salad:
Greek Yogurt: I always buy plain yogurt from the market to make the salad. Because plain yogurt will not contradict the other ingredients.
If you use any flavored Greek yogurt, you may end up with a different dish than what you're trying to make.
Cucumbers: You may use any cucumber, English, petite cucumber, or others. Check before slicing them, as some may taste bitter.
And these are not good for the salad.
Dill leaves: You are lucky if you have this in your pantry. Seasoning with fresh leaves gives out more aroma. But in its absence, you may also use dried dill leaves.
Red Chili Flakes: I added red chili flakes to heat the salad. But adding it is optional.
How long does this salad last?
Store the leftover Greek yogurt cucumber salad in the sealed container. It stays good if it is consumed within a day.
The cucumber leaves out liquid if stored for a while, making the salad watery when stored longer.
