Tasty Cucumber and Yogurt Salad

One of my favorite side salads is this tasty Lebanese cucumber and yogurt salad recipe. It is cool, refreshing, and overall delicious! My mom’s side of the family is Armenian, therefore I grew up with a cultured Meditteranean palette. There are so many different recipes I still want to learn from her side of the family. When I learn them, I will most definitely share them with you all, so stay tuned for future recipe blogs!
