We love this Cucumber Salad with Yogurt Mint. For a cucumber salad recipe with good crunch, weighting salted cucumbers forced more water from them than salting alone. One to three hours worked best. Even at 12 hours, the cucumbers gave up no more water than they had after three hours. Here is a tasty Cucumber Salad with Yogurt Mint recipe.

This is a tasty Light Corn Chowder. I use Spanish onions for their sweet, mild flavor, but all-purpose yellow onions will work fine too. Do not substitute skim milk for the 2 percent milk or this Light Corn Chowder will taste watery.

This is a great Chicken Curry with Yogurt, Cilantro and Zucchini recipe. I always gather and prepare all of my ingredients before I begin. Garlic and ginger may be pureed by hand or in a minichop food processor. If using a minichopper, process the garlic and ginger with one to two tablespoons of water until pureed. You can substitute a scant half teaspoon of cayenne pepper for the jalapeƱo, adding it to the skillet with the other ground dried spices. You can also increase the wet (garlic, ginger, jalapeƱos, and onions) or dry spice quantities. Serve the curry with basmati rice.

For these Italian Rum Balls, finely grind the walnuts in your food processor for 15 to 20 seconds. Do not overprocess the nuts or they will become greasy.
