Persian Cucumber, Yogurt and Raisin Salad


I had this salad in a lovely Persian restaurant. It was so exotic and delightful. I love the crispy cucumbers with the chewy raisins and then the creamy yogurt to bring it all together. Lovely combination of texture with flavor!

3 medium cucumbers, peeled

½ cup Greek Style yogurt

15 fresh mint leaves

3 tablespoons raising or dried mulberries

1 tablespoon chopped dill, coarsely chopped

Freshly cracked pepper

Seat salt

Drizzle of pomegranate molasses

1. Place the cucumbers on a large board and smash into large chunks with a rolling pin. Put the broken pieces of cucumber in a large bowl with the yogurt, mint, raisins and dill. Gently toss and season

2. Drizzle with pomegranate molasses and serve
