  1. Place all but the last two ingredients in a large salad bowl and mix them well.
  2. Put the yogurt in a jug and stir in the Pakistani basar (or other spice mix) until it is evenly distributed.
  3. Pour over the salad and toss thoroughly.

Serving suggestions

Serve with on a bed of lettuce with some bread.


Use whatever spice mix you like but I think Pakistani basar goes well with cheese. However, you may need more or less than 5 tbsps, so mix it into the yogurt 1 tablespoon at a time, tasting as you go.

I used Gruyère cheese, but any hard cheese would be fine.
