CUCUMBER & MINT DIP

I have been wanting to make this dip for a long time now. Some how it just wouldn't materialize. Finally managed to make it yesterday for dinner which was served as an accompanying dipping sauce with Pita pockets / Falafal.......their marriage is ideal for the summer, as it fills you up but still is so light and refreshing. That's what you look out for in the summers isn't it????
