      Me Too, But I'd Leave Out The Mint I Think.

        I leave out the mint most of the time, never think about buying it. But it's still good even without the mint.

          Okay I modified this and I sure either way would be awsome.

          I used the same amount of wine vinegar, salt, sugar and oil. But on cucumber, a bunch of miniture heirloom tomatoes, 1/3 c. chopped vidialia onion, chopped basil and chunks of fresh mozzerela(sp). Yummy
