Mediterranean Yogurt Salad

by Simla on September 7, 2011

This is a delicious, cooling dish we have often in my family, in particular during hot summer months. Very easy to prepare, and very Mediterranean in every sense of the word: flavor palate, health properties, seasonally appropriate. Fantastic as a side dish or snack.

It will help steady your focus and mood, boost your immunity, nurture you with rich, health-promoting vitamins and minerals, and provide cleansing elements to help you gently detoxify.

Mediterranean Yogurt Salad
Makes 4-6 servings.


1 – 1.5 cups full-fat organic “greek” yogurt (although this is a Turkish recipe – hah!)
1 garlic clove, peeled pressed finely using a garlic press
2 cups raw baby spinach leaves, rinsed and dried
(or better yet, to fit the original recipe: 2 cups purslane leaves if you can find them)
Sea salt, to taste


  1. Mix the yogurt and garlic.
  2. Fold in spinach (or purslane) leaves.
  3. Add sea salt, to taste.
