Combine cucumbers, mint, garlic (if using fresh), green onion, and cheese in a bowl.
Combine olive oil, lemon juice, pepper, and salt (if using) in a screw top jar. Shake until well combined. Pour over salad.
Enjoy at room temperature or chilled.
Note: excellent with pita crisps.
Note: When made for the blog, the dressing was omitted and only half the goat cheese was used (where most of the calories are hiding). Instead, I just used a light olive oil mist, which may not have been necessary. Cucumbers are plenty wet as it is!
