Serious Salads: Cucumber and Mint Salad
Thinly sliced cucumber and fresh mint make a refreshing summer salad—delicious on its own as a light bite, or as a side at your next picnic or barbecue.
Soaking the raw onions in water tames their bite. Be sure to salt and drain the cucumbers—it ensures the cucumbers stay crunchy and prevents the dressing from getting watery.
