Cucumber, Radish, and Carrot Salad

I often ate cucumbers with vinegar when I was growing up. This salad is a prettier and more flavorful version of that easy snack. The mint and red wine vinegar can be substituted with other fresh herbs or vinegars if you want a different flavor.

Cucumber, Radish, and Carrot Salad

1 medium cucumber
1 medium carrot
5-6 radishes
15-20 fresh mint leaves, minced
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp agave nectar
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
pinch salt and pepper

Peel and thinly slice the cucumber and carrot. Thinly slice the radishes. Place all three vegetables in a bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk together the minced mint, olive oil, agave, red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper. Poor dressing over the vegetables and mix well. Cover the bowl and put in refrigerator to marinate for about an hour before serving. Serve salad on it's own or over a bed of baby spinach. Serves about 4.
