~tomato,cucumber and mint side salad~

Quick tomato and cucumber side salad with fresh mint

Quantities are pretty vague here, it depends how many are going to eat the salad and perhaps what else is being served!

Chop some tomatoes into small bits, chop about the same quantity of cucumber into small bits and mix together. Add some chopped red onion and fresh mint leaves (also cut into small bits). Just before serving squirt with lemon juice, season as desired and decorate with a sprig of mint.

P.S.  the original recipe calls for 6 tomatoes, a small cucumber, 1 small red onion, 6 tbsp fresh mint – but this makes too much for us so I just make what seems the right amount as it doesn’t really keep until the next day.
