Recipe Fridays: Persian Yogurt Salad

I grew up eating this refreshing and satisfying salad (also called Mast-o-khiar) on it's own with bread and as a side with meals. It is very similar to Tzatziki. I kind of eyeball and taste test everything as I make it--do the same and tailor it to your liking.

1 large container of plain yogurt
1-2 cucumbers, peeled and diced
Generous scoops of mint
Generous scoops of dill
Optional ingredients (I, however, never put these in it): chopped garlic/shallots

Mix the yogurt and cucumber in a bowl. Add mint, dill, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Chill and serve.
