Calories: 113 per portion

ingredients

serves 4
100 g (4 oz) pasta shapes
salt
175 g (6 oz) radishes, trimmed, washed and sliced
1/2 cucumber, about 225 g (8 oz), unpeeled and diced
150 ml (1/4 pint) natural low-fat yogurt
freshly ground black pepper
1 cos lettuce, washed and dried
2 spring onions, trimmed, peeled and finely chopped, to garnish

method

1. Put the pasta into a large pan of boiling lightly salted water. Bring back to the boil and cook for about 10 minutes until 'al dente'. Rinse under cold running water and drain thoroughly.

2. Put the radishes and cucumber into a bowl and add the pasta. Stir in the yogurt adding plenty of black pepper and a little salt. Turn the pasta, radishes and cucumber over in the yogurt to coat thoroughly.

3. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a serving dish and spoon the salad into them. Garnish with the chopped spring onions.

For this main course salad, it is best not to peel the cucumber as its green skin looks so decorative. Choose from a wide variety of pasta shapes.
