I'm not a huge cucumber fan.  However, when its hot outside the combination of tangy greek yogurt and cucumber makes for a perfect refreshing side or sauce with almost every meal.

1/2 cup low fat or fat free greek yogurt
1/2 cup seeded chopped cucumber
3 tbsp chopped scallions
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cumin
squeeze (approximately 1 tsp) fresh lemon juice

1. Combine cucumber and scallions in a bowl
2. Stir in greek yogurt
3. Sprinkle salt and cumin over top and stir
4. Stir in lemon juice
5. Serve as a side, over a protein, or in a sandwich

I love to use this raita with fish or over a piece of lamb.  Yum!
