Minted Cucumber Salad

Minted Cucumber Salad

This cool, crisp salad is a low-carb variation of a traditional, high-sugar, marinated cucumber salad. Some traditional marinated cucumber salads have as much as 3/4 cup sugar. We used a calorie-free sweetener and reduced the amount to 2 teaspoons. The fresh mint also contributes a bit of a sweet sensation.
