Crisp Vegetable Salad with Cherries, Mint and a Jalapeno Vinaigrette

2 C fresh, dark red cherries pitted and quartered
4 stalks celery cut into large angled slices
2 large cucumbers, peeled and sliced thinly
1 jalapeno chopped small (just the green, not the seeds or pith)
Onion to taste, I used about 6 very, very thin slices of white onion and kept the pieces long.
1 T fresh mint cut finely
2 to 3 T rice wine vinegar
1 1/2 T sunflower oil or other light oil
2 T sugar
Salt and Pepper

Assemble salad items in a bowl, mix dressing separately and whisk to combine. Toss with salad and chill for an hour. Serve with mint sprig as a garnish. Can add more jalapeno if you like it hotter.
