Like all herbs, mint has the best flavor when harvested often. Use tender, new leaves for this salad rather than older, stronger-tasting leaves.

• 6 cups Bibb or other tender lettuce, torn
• 1 cup fresh mint leaves, torn slightly
• 1 cup sweet cherry tomatoes, cut in half
• 1⁄2 cucumber, peeled and sliced thinly
• 3 tablespoons raspberry vinegar

1. Combine lettuce, mint, tomatoes and cucumber, then add raspberry vinegar and toss.
