Cucumber Yogurt

Virtually every country in the Middle East has a cooling cucumber and yogurt dish such as tzatziki, cacik and tarator, but here we’re making an Iranian version known as mast o khiar. It often contains raisins for a delicious sweetness that really complements the herbs, creamy yogurt and cooling cucumber.
