Cucumber Mint Salad
From The Wednesday Market
<p>In my garden, we grow pickling cucumbers that are crisp, firm, slightly sweet and particularly easy to grow. Nevertheless, there are a variety of cucumbers that are much sweeter, juicier and, frankly, tastier than mine. This recipe will work with whatever cucumbers you have, but if you find yourself at a farmers market confronted with ‘Sikkim,’ ‘Poona Kheera’ or ‘Lemon’ cucumbers, you’re in for a great treat, so don’t be scared away by their nontraditional appearance.</p>Source: Mother Earth News (Entered by Brenda Fayard)
