  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup raspberries

  2. In a salad bowl, toss cucumbers with yogurt mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Chill in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Garnish with raspberries.

Cook's Notes

Soy yogurt is called for because it's less sour than regular fat-free yogurt, but whole plain yogurt can also be used.
