Serve this delicious yogurt-dressed vegetable combo as a salad or a mouth-cooling condiment with spicy food. We think it is terrific with highly spiced grilled chicken. The cumin adds an exotic flavor, but dill works a different, equally appealing magic. You can easily multiply this recipe to feed a crowd.

    This is a delicious recipe. I added an extra cup of low-fat yogurt and used the juce of a whole lemon and added a tsp. of fresh dried mint leaves. I really enjoyed making it for my friends and family for the 4th. It is a cooling dish.

    Thank you
