Cucumber and mint is a refreshing combination. This salad makes for a great picnic food because the cucumbers stay crunchy for longer after being tossed with a little salt to draw out excess water. Don’t be put off by the raw onion—the soak in cold water removes the raw taste and brings out their natural sweetness.
