Very very nice. Not only wasn't there too much mint, but I added extra mint, since my mint wasn't super fresh. I thought there was a little too much dressing so I added some extra cucumber and also 1/2 of an onion sliced into VERY thin half-rings. I wonder how it would be with fresh mint. If anyone tries, pls let us know!

A wonderful, easy cuke salad recipe! I think I'd use minced fresh garlic vs. garlic powder next time. The mint makes it very special. :) thank you for posting!
