I loved this! I ended up having to use dried mint because my fresh was not as fresh as I thought, but this still came out wonderfully! The combination of flavours is perfect. I layered the cucumber between paper towels and just left it on the counter, and it's how I'm going to do it from now on. I'll be making this one again, definitely!

This is a great tasting recipe that I will be making often. This was enjoyed by all who tried it here!! I did not have red onions so used regular which worked fine.

Excellent. The combination of lemon and mint is what sets this simple salad over the top.

a lovely refreshing crunchy salad! I used baby cucumbers so i didn't seed them and used yogurt in place of the sour cream, with splenda to replace the sugar. Loved the method, it made the cukes and onion lovely and crisp. The radish added a nice little bite and the mint was a perfect refreshing finish. This salad will be made often throughout the summer.
