Lassi Drink with Cucumber
If you’ve never had a savory lassi before, this is a good one to start with because it’s very mild. Made with Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt, ice water, cucumber, turmeric, fresh lemon juice, a pinch of salt and a garnish of finely shredded mint, this cucumber drink is amazingly refreshing. For more adventurous lassi fans – and for a more pronounced yellow hue – feel free to use a heavier hand with the turmeric.
