This light salad is excellent as a side dish with fish or meat, or as a palate cleanser in between courses. The best part: it is easy as 1-2-3!


  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 sweet white or red onion
  • ¾ cup of white vinegar
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2 large sprigs of Peppermint Jim’s fresh spearmint

Cut the cucumbers in half moon slices. Cut the onion in quarter slices. Whip the sugar into the vinegar until dissolved. Stack the mint leaves and rip them in small pieces. This keeps them from turning brown and brings out the full flavor. Toss all the ingredients together and voilà. Serve chilled.
