Cucumber salad with mint

Posted on

I love summer, because we get swamped with fresh veggies, and we are currently up to our ears in cucumbers and zucchinnis.  When we need  a break from the cucumber salad I posted here, I switch to this one, which works well with more Mediterranean meals and is just as easy.

Wash one large cucumber well, and peel if you see fit.  Slice thinly into your serving bowl using the slice bit on the grater.  Finely chop a handful of fresh mint and dump in on top of the cucumbers.  In a little bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice with 1 tablespoon of water and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Add some ground black pepper and a pinch of salt.  Pour on top of the salad and toss.   Let sit a few minutes before serving.

Enjoy the summer while it lasts!
