Raw Rhubarb, Cucumber, and Mint Salad

This salad is a change of pace from a normal salad routine. It's a bit tart and very refreshing. The author suggests serving it with olive oil poached salmon.

Raw Rhubarb, Cucumber, and Mint Salad (from The Slow Mediterranean Kitchen)

2 young rhubarb stalks
1 crisp medium cucumber, peeled
2 tbsp coarse salt
2 handfuls arugula
1 - 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup shredded mint leaves

1. Cut rhubarb and cucumber into very thin slices.
2. Toss rhubarb and cucumber with coarse salt and let stand 10 minutes. Rinse and drain.
3. In a salad bowl, toss rhubarb and cucumber with arugula. Drizzle on lemon juice, scatter mint leaves on top, and serve.
