Refreshing Radish and Cucumber Raita Salad

April 6, 2017

Raita is a condiment packed with vitamins C and K and cancer-protective anthocyanins. Enjoy it with spicy kebabs, herbed flatbread, or as an easy dip.


  • 2 large radishes, quartered, thinly sliced, about ½ cup
  • 1 small Persian cucumber, quartered lengthwise, thinly sliced, about ½ cup*
  • 1 cup plain whole milk yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

* If Persian cucumber is not available use 5-inch piece seedless cucumber, halved lengthwise, scooped out, and finely chopped.


Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Set aside 10 minutes to let flavors develop. Raita will become a bit thinner.
