Recipe: Cucumber Mint Salad

I was a little wary of this dish at first; however as soon as I started cutting and mixing all the ingredients together I knew I had made the right choice in fixing it up for a friends anniversary dinner. I recommend giving it a try but only if you like cucumbers and mint; because obviously those are the flavors that stand out most.
