This easy dish borrows from Indian raita, a cucumber and yogurt mixture designed to cut the heat of spicy foods. Here we added mixed vegetables such as onion and radishes for a refreshing take on chopped salad. Prep Time: about 20 minutes, plus 1 hour to chill.

How to Make It

Step 1
1

Place slivered onion in a bowl. Add cold water to cover and let stand 10 minutes. Meanwhile, slice radishes. Cut cucumber in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds with a spoon, and thinly slice into crescents. Drain onion.

Step 2
2

In a large bowl, mix yogurt, lemon juice, cumin seeds, salt, pepper, and all but 2 tablespoons of the mint. Add onion, radishes, and cucumber and mix gently to coat. Cover and chill at least 1 hour or up to 1 day.

Just before serving, stir salad again to combine. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons mint.
