Lemon Cucumber Salsa With Fresh Mint

Here in Oregon I can buy organic yet inexpensive lemon cucumbers from the Farmers' Market-alas, only in the summer! Sweeter and milder than standard cucumbers, this variety of cucumbers (L cucumis sativus) is light and refreshing! Be sure to choose ones that are firm, about the size of a lime, and have no large brown spots. From Home Grown Cooking.
