During hot spring days there is nothing better for a simple lunch than a nice mixed salad with yogurt sauce. This salad is super easy and quick to make. The yogurt sauce is light and also very flavorful thanks to the addition of mayonnaise, mustard and a dash of honey which adds a sweet note. You can customize this salad according to your preferences by adding other types of vegetables, legumes such as chickpeas and even something crunchy like croutons or nuts.
