Yogurt salad

This recipe is inspired by those beautiful pickles, you’ll see below in the photos.
I photographed some of Mama’s delicious jars a couple of months ago and since the opened jar of pickles was right here I decided to make our favorite yogurt salad. It’s pretty simple actually, but so delicious. Just make sure to get your hands on a good quality Greek yogurt – that’s the most popular name around English speaking countries (I don’t know why), but around here we call it drained yogurt, cause most of its water has been drained and what’s left is thick and creamy full fat yogurt.
