Mustard Green And Yoghurt Salad

Mustard green and yoghurt salad is great for those who don't have a lot of time to prepare a meal, yet want to avoid eating ready meals or junk food. A mustard green and yogurt salad can be prepared in approximately 10 minutes and tastes delicious.

Mustard Green and Yoghurt Salad

For your salad you will need:
  • A bunch of mustard greens
  • A cup of plain yogurt

First make sure the mustard greens are well washed. Once washed, dry them well and take off any stalks before finely chopping them. Next take the mustard greens and place in a mixing bowl before mixing in the plain yoghurt. Once you have done this, and the ingredients are well blended, cover the bowl and place in your fridge. If you wish, you can also add mint to your mustard green and yogurt salad before serving to your guests.

Using Onions with Yogurt

Yoghurt is also a main ingredient in this next salad recipe, although it takes slightly longer to prepare than the previous recipe.For this you will need:
  • 1/2 a green pepper that has been chopped and had its seeds removed
  • 2 tops of green onions
  • 2 tomatoes that have been chopped
  • A cucumber that has been chopped
  • 1/2 a tablespoon of dill
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of ground pepper
  • A cup of plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of dry dill weed
  • 1/3 of a teaspoon of salt

First take a large bowl and mix together the pepper, green onions, tomatoes and cucumber. Once you have done this take a small bowl and mix the salt, pepper, dill and yogurt well together before pouring the yogurt mixture over the salad, ensuring that everything is well coated.

Spinach and Yogurt

Another quick and simple salad recipe using yogurt involves spinach.For this you will need:
  • A clove of garlic that has been crushed
  • 1 1/4 lb of spinach
  • Some salt and pepper
  • A cup of plain yogurt

First take the spinach and, after giving it a good wash, remove any of its hard stems before draining the spinach of any excess water. Next, using their own juice, stew the spinach leaves in a large covered saucepan for approximately 20 minutes. This should allow the spinach leaves to become tender. Once cooked allow the spinach leaves to cool. Next take the garlic and yogurt and mix well together in a medium size bowl before adding to the saucepan and seasoning with salt and pepper.

Beetroot With Your Yogurt Salad

For this variation of a yogurt salad you will need:
  • 3 tablespoons of Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 a bunch of mint leaves
  • 150g of beetroot that has been cooked
  • A teaspoon of red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 a garlic clove
  • A pinch of salt

First take the vinegar and yogurt and mix well together. Once you have done this take the garlic and mint leaves and chop into fine pieces. Next take the beetroot and finely slice. After this has all been completed add the garlic, beetroot and mint to the yogurt, along with a pinch of salt, and serve to your guests.
