My mother's grandmother made this recipe, so it's been in the family for years. We enjoy it the best during the hot, lazy, days of summer.

2cups plain yogurt
1/2 garlic clove, crushed
1tablespoon white vinegar
1/2teaspoon salt
1tablespoon olive oil
1tablespoon chopped chives
1teaspoon chopped mint leaves (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
1 1/2cups peeled, seeded and diced cucumbers
1cup seedless green grape halves

Instructions

  1. Place yogurt in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until very smooth.
  2. Add garlic, vinegar, salt, olive oil, chives, and mint leaves; beat 30 seconds. Fold in cucumbers and grape halves.
  3. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving in salad bowls.

Tips From Our Test Kitchen: This easy and flavorful salad is a keeper. For color, add red and green grapes.
