      1/2  C             Cucumber
    1      Pt            Plain Yogurt
    1      Tsp           Salt
    1      Tsp           Paprika
    1      Tbsp          Fresh Chopped Mint
 
 Take the cucumber and cut lengthways into long strips. This is the
 traditional way of cutting for Raeta. You will sometimes come across Raeta
 with the cucumber cut into cubes or large chunks but narrow strips is the
 best way to use it as this ensures the yogurt can be easily mixed in with
 the Raeta. Take the yogurt and with a fork beat in the salt and half the
 paprika. Now gently combine the cucumber strips with the yogurt. Pour into
 a serving bowl and sprinkle the remaining paprika and mint on the top, to
 garnish. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours and serve.
