When I was a child, cucumber never entered our house because my father considered it to be unhealthy. I remember its fresh aroma on hot summer evenings, when everyone had dinner outdoors.
This salad is very easy to make and is a perfect side dish for grilled lamb or any broiled meat.
Wash and dry the cucumber and cut it into very thin crosswise slices. Place the slices in a salad bowl, sprinkling with the feta cheese and mint.
In a small bowl whisk the oil and lemon juice with the salt and pepper to make ladolemono (a vinaigrette made with lemon juice). Pour over the salad and toss thoroughly. Serve immediately.
