Minted Cucumber Salad

2 cucumbers, peeled, halved lengthwise, seeded, and
thinly sliced crosswise
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup chopped scallions
4 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar
2 packets Splenda
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Cayenne pepper to taste

Put cucumbers in a colander, sprinkle with salt, toss well, and drain for 1 hour. Put cucumber on several layers of paper towel, cover with more paper towel, and let sit 5 minutes, pressing down occasionally.

Combine cucumbers with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. Chill 30 minutes.
