Cucumber Yogurt Salad

Riffing on Greek tzatziki, this cold salad is great as a standalone dish or heaped on top of whole-wheat pita. Make the flavor your own by adding a generous helping of your favorite herbs. The simplicity of the flavors make it perfect for savoring strongly flavored greens like tarragon, mint or dill.
