Mint Cucumber Salad

Recently I went to my girlfriends pool for a nice day in the Sun. She served me this salad and it was so wonderful. All Negative Calorie ingredients, so you can eat it all day long without worry. If you are not familiar with negative calorie food, it is food that actually uses more calories to eat and digest, than the food contains. This dish is perfect for Summer and your swimsuit figure.
