  • 1 – 1 ½ Green Chilies adjust to taste
  • 1 ¼ cup Yogurt I used ¾ cup Greek Yogurt & ½ cup homemade yogurt
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon Salt adjust to taste
  • Cilantro for garnish


  • Peel cucumber, cut lengthwise into 4 wedges that is plus cut all the way down and then slice it. Each piece should be a quarter of a slice.
  • Slice onion and cut tomato into ¼” cubes.
  • De-seed green chilies and finely chop.
  • Mix all the vegetables with some salt.
  • Add yogurt and mix well.
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.


  • I usually use ½ store bought yogurt and ½ homemade yogurt. This time I used ¾ greek yogurt and ½ cup homemade yogurt.
  • When I have guests over, I add some sour cream. I add 1-2 tablespoons to ¼ cup of sour cream. How much sour cream goes in is totally subjective to one’s taste.
