Cucumber Mint Salad with Chives and Sesame

This is a beautiful spring salad with fresh, bright, green flavors.  It can be customized any number of ways by substituting your favorite herbs.  It’s a wonderful side salad for a spa party or reception.  Don’t make it too far ahead, however — the cucumber ribbons tend to wilt after a time.
