Cucumber Tomato Salad with Zucchini and Black Olives in Lemon Balsamic Vinaigrette

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"This is a deliciously light and fresh-tasting twist on cucumber tomato salad. It takes me to the water's edge, and begs to be served with fresh seafood. Substitute Greek kalamata olives for black olives if desired."

We didn't care for this. I had high hopes b/c it is such a diet friendly salad. It just didn't work for us.
