Tomato cucumber salad with mint
This is a refreshing summer salad perfect for a picnic or barbecue. I usually serve it with a spicy sirloin steak and thin-cut chips.

This was nice and refreshing, but it had a lot of liquid. Next time, I will salt and drain the cucumbers first.

The perfect accompaniment to pretty much any 'summer'/ BBQ dishes. I sometimes add a litte chilli for some extra 'bite'.
