This chutney-style side dish is a perfect grab-and-go salad.

This refreshing salad is in the style of an Indian raita or a Greek tzatziki, a chutney side dish.

2 small cucumbers, peeled
3/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
4 to 6 butter lettuce cups


  1. Wash and dry tomatoes. Cut in half. Cut peeled cucumber into bite-size pieces.
  2. Combine yogurt, mint, lemon juice and salt. Mix well. Pour yogurt mixture over tomato mixture; toss. Place into washed lettuce cups.
