This super-quick salad has a nice "kick" and makes a great addition to any tossed salad. It's also delicious packed into pita bread with sliced turkey and tomato.

1     tablespoon plus 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
2     cups cucumber, peeled, sliced very thin
2     teaspoons dried chives

Gather your ingredients.

In a medium bowl, combine yogurt and mustard.

Stir in cucumber and chives.

Chill several hours.

This salad tastes best when served the same day.
