I had some extra fresh mint on hand, and decided to throw this together for our New Year's party! Be sure to really press and squeeze the excess water out of your cucumber shreds so you dip stays thick, and does not become watery. I drained mine in a mesh colander and then, used my hands, but you can also use a clean tea towel or cheesecloth to squeeze out the water. Make this in the morning and let it chill all day, or overnight, for best results. Cooking time is chill time.
