Cucumber Mint Salad

This is one of our family favorites and its EASY and inexpensive.  But it feels super elegant and ritzy...

1 Cucumber -- peel and quarter lengthwise -- scoop out ALL of the seed and pulp and then slice into little chunks
2-3 stalks of green celery cut into small slices (only use the sweet green part)
Mint -- use however much you like -- we like alot!!  Roll the leaves in your fingers and use kitchen shears to make tiny snips of mint for the salad
1/3 cup of crumbled Feta cheese (I never measure this -- just toss in a handful)

Mix it all together and let it sit while you make the rest of dinner ---
Sprinkle it with the lightest vinaigrette you can find -- we like Vanilla Vinaigrette from Baldwin's Extracts

We serve with grilled meat or salmon and some warm pita breads ---
