Cucumber and tomato salad with mint dressing

English cucumber is one of my favorite,is sweeter and have thinner skin than other varieties of  cucumber and they are nearly seedless.It's remind me a type of cucumber in Asian country.
I use them so often to make this Indonesian acar timun  very simple salad and perfect pair with any fried rice dishes.
But in this cucumber and tomatoes salad,I try to mixed things up with other herb that I'm not familiar with,like "mint" I don't use mint much on my cooking.

- 1/2 tbsp chopped mint

( whisk all ingredients together until combine)

Preparations :
