    Ingredients

    • 2 cucumbers
    • 1 small onion
    • ¼ cup chopped mint
    • For the dressing
    • 3 tbsp white vinegar
    • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • ¼ - ½ tbsp pepper (depending on how much spice you like)
    • 1 tsp sugar

    Directions

    1. Cut cucumbers in thirds and use a corer to take out the seeds or cut them lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Toss with salt and pop in the fridge for 30 minutes.
    2. Soak onion in ice water for 10 minutes – this will make the stinky, eyes watering burn of the onion go away.
    3. In a bowl mix together the dressing ingredients.
    4. In your salad bowl, throw in the cucumber, mint and onion and toss. Some people have fancy tossing spoons and strange salad s but your hands will work just fine in making sure everything is mixed together.
    5. Pour on dressing. Mix well again.
    6. Refrigerate for 20 minutes before serving.
