This cool, crisp salad is a low-carb variation of a traditional, high-sugar, marinated cucumber salad. Some traditional marinated cucumber salads have as much as 3/4 cup sugar. We used a calorie-free sweetener and reduced the amount to 2 teaspoons. The fresh mint also contributes a bit of a sweet sensation.
1/2 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
Dash of hot sauce
3 cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced
1 small red onion, sliced and separated into rings
Boston lettuce leaves (optional)
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk.
Place cucumber and onion slices in a shallow dish. Spoon yogurt mixture over vegetables. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes. Serve over lettuce leaves, if desired.
