Meditteranian Cucumber Salad

This salad is refreshing by itself or as a great side-dish, especially to summer barbeque or grills. The key secret here for its taste is that the cucumber (preferably garden-fresh) is soaked up in chilled mint yogurt dressing which has been sweetened with raisins. With the addition of walnuts, it has a unique, crisp creates a heavenly combination. I should get a patent on this before it takes off.
