Balkan Cucumber Salad

Makes 4 servings
Every year I wait anxiously for the cucumbers to be ready so I can make this refreshing and easy to make salad.  It's the perfect food for the beginning of the hot weather!

    1/4 cup very thinly sliced red onions                          
    2 medium cucumbers (6-7 inches long)                           
    1/2 teaspoon salt                                              
    Freshly ground black pepper                                    
    3/4 cup yogurt                                                 
    1 clove garlic minced                                          
    1 teaspoon honey (optional)                                    
    1 tablespoon freshly minced mint leaves (or 1 tsp dried)       
    1/8 cup (packed) finely minced parsley                         
    1 scallion finely minced (greens included)                     
    1 tablespoon freshly minced dill (or 1 tsp dried)              
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts lightly toasted (optional)             

Peel (optional) the cucumbers, seed them (optional), and cut them into thin rounds.  Place them in a medium sized bowl.  Add the remaing ingredients except walnuts and mix well.  Cover and refrigerate until serving time.  Sprinkle the walnuts on top just before serving.  Prep time: 10-15 minutes
