Lebanese Salata

Ingredients
1 large clove garlic (or 2 if you'd like)
1 cucumber
1 bunch of green onions
about 2 tablespoons dried mint
olive oil
3-4 roma tomatoes(Or any other juicy variety)
1 large green bell pepper, de-seeded
juice of 2-3 lemons...really juice 'em! you need as much as you can get
black pepper
salt

Cooking Instructions
Mince garlic and smash against sides of large salad bowl with a spoon-this makes the garlic weep.

Cut peeled cucumber over bowl into bite size pieces- you want all of the juices for everything to go into the bowl. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt- this makes the cucumber weep.

Cut green onions into small pieces, add to bowl. Add tomatoes cut into small pieces, and their juice from the cutting board. cut green bell pepper into small pieces, add to bowl.

Add lemon juice. Rub dried mint in your fingers to release flavor; add to bowl. Add some olive oil, just a drizzle or two. feel free to add some black pepper. at this point. I let this mixture sit in the fridge for a while...about 30 minutes. it lets the flavors really soak into each other.
