Level of difficulty:  Simple, just some chopping takes a little time

Makes 6-8 servings

Came up with this on a last minute whim, and then couldn’t remember it so have now made it a few times and results below.  In addition to being a really refreshing and pleasing salad, it is a great accompaniment to any kind of pork cut (loin, chop, etc.) if you heat it just a bit.

In a medium sized bowl assemble main ingredients, simply piling on as you prepare.

(1) English Cucumber, skin on (scrubbed clean of course) and seeded.  Note that saving the seeds for a later ingredient to a lemon/cucumber and water detox drink means no scraps here. Sliced very thin. Patted dry.

(1) C each cleaned and patted dry black (or red) and green grapes, cut in half

(1) oz. mint leaves, cleaned and patted dry, chopped but not too finely.



1/3 C EVOO

Juice of one lime

1/2 TBS honey

Whisk above well and pour over salad ingredients. Mix gently but well.  Add Salt and pepper to taste.  Tastes best if it sits for ~ 1/2 hour chilling before serving.

PS – If you want to really kick this up with a sharp dimension, add a thinly sliced clove or two of garlic.
