Tomato & Cucumber Salad With Mint

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by DeeCooks

This is so refreshing in the summertime. It's from Epicurious originally, but I marinate the red onions with the cukes, too. (Better that way!) It's a great barbecue side--- I can't count how many parties we've served this at, often by request!

This is such a great recipe. So light and refreshing, just the thing for a slight salad or side dish in summer. The flavours are so great together and not too overpowering. I made the recipe the same as it states.....except I used small grape tomatoes, which I halved instead of chopped large tomatoes. DH just loved this salad, and he is not one for salad's with dressings at all. Such a great recipe Dee and so easy to put together, I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
