Our 15-month old son gobbled this up as though he hadn't eaten in days. He devoured it! So cool and delicious with the mint. Fast, easy and a delicious condiment. Thank you!

Could you recommend a dairy free substitute for the whole milk yogurt? Thanks!

Hi Dana, This is one dish where it is difficult to find a good non-dairy alternative. Most of the rice, soy and nut yogurts have a lot of sweeteners in them which is odd when used in this typically sour topping. What I have my no-dairy students do is cut up all the vegetables and dress them with a little rice vinegar and sugar and make a cucumber salsa to use instead.

Hi Cynthia! How long would this last if we didn't use it all? 1 week? Maybe 2?

Chandin, Should last a week. Not 2. The water in the cucumbers will begin to emerge as they break down and the mixture can get rather watery. Also the texture of the cucumber would no longer be crisp.

We would like to contact Cynthia to see if she would do a private nutrition consult for our 12 year son who is having trouble getting the nutrition he needs and gaining weight. He plays soccer, runs track and cross country. Thanks.
