Refreshing X10

this is one of my all-time summer favorites,
& so easy to make.
you have to find your own texture and the exactly right
proportion of yogurt, cucumber & water to make it perfect for yourself.
it's worth the 5 minutes it takes to make it, believe me.

& it's so good for us !!

I learned to really like this in the Middle East,
and now my entire family loves it.

it's pretty too...

but, to start with here's the recipe...

Cucumber & Mint Yogurt Drink

2 medium  cucumbers. peeled and finely chopped
4 cups full-fat plain yogurt (I use Greek Gods Fat-Free, love the taste & the consistancy)
2 tsp. salt (adjust to taste)
3 cups cold filtered/bottled water.  COLD is the key.  Or use ICE
1 tsp.  dried mint or 1 tbsp fresh chopped mint

Add all of the ingredients in a large pitcher or bowl and stir well.   I put mine into the blender and blend until the cucumber is drinkable through a straw.  Pour or ladle into glasses that have a few cubes of ice.  Garnish with thinly sliced cucumber & the chopped mint.   
Serves 4-6

loving loving this table setting using natural greenery, 
also love the little fruits on the plates,
I could go for this all year round using seasonal greens & decorations.
could you?
