Mr. Well’s Translucent Cucumber Salad

Mr Well's Translucent Cucumber Salad

This salad is a simple variation on Amber’s Cucumber Salad, but is special enough to deserve it’s own place. It is simple but gorgeous, with the cucumber slices becoming almost translucent if you slice them thin enough. A perfect Summery day’s salad. Serve with some light brown bread for lunch on the terrace.
