  • Yogurt Garlic Cucumber Sauce is one of those unique sauces that you may find in a Persian cookbook or if you are learning more about Persian cooking. It is one of those unique sauces you will find variations of as you get more into Mediterranean cuisine. It is a sauce that is often used in Persian cooking as a side to complement the rest of the meal. This amazing yogurt sauce recipe can also be enjoyed by itself. This particular Yogurt Garlic Cucumber Sauce comes with a twist as we added raisins to the yogurt sauce recipe. It may sound odd, but we assure you that once you try this combination, your taste buds will fall in love with this cucumber sauce flavor.


    1. In a medium bowl mix all ingredients together.

    2. Serve by itself or with your favorite dish. This sauce is delicious in pita sandwiches, stews, gyros, red meat, rice, Persian cooking, salads, and more.

    There is something special about the combination of the spiciness of the garlic, the sweetness from the Raisins, and the crunch from the cucumbers that keep it fresh and light along with the creaminess of the yogurt. The blend of flavors can easily be enjoyed by itself although adding in a starch like rice or meat adds a new dimension and depth to the experience.
