  1. In a medium bowl mix together the vinegar and onions. Let sit for 1 hour.
  2. Cut the cucumber into quarters lengthwise and remove the seeds. Then cut them into ¼-inch thick slices. Sprinkle the cucumber with salt and add to the onions.  Mix in the radish slices and the chopped mint. Chill for 30 minutes, then serve.

Chef Tips

You can keep the onions in a jar under vinegar for up to 3 months in the fridge. They will turn a pretty pale pink and are a terrific garnish for all kinds of salad veggies, from avocados to cabbage to potatoes.
