Cucumber with Mint and Pomegranate Seeds

It has been a bountiful cucumber harvest at my place.  I’m always afraid there are not going to be enough cucumbers, so I over plan, and then the harvest comes and I am searching for the recipes that will help me to enjoy them in the best way possible.

This recipe from Art Smith’s Healthy Comfort Cookbook turned out to be a great recipe.  I was able to use my new favorite kitchen gadget — the mandoline — and put together a yummy and unique salad for lunch one day. Cucumber with Mint and Pomegranate Seeds.jpg
