A tasty, quick fresh summer salad. I substituted Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing & left out the parmesan cheese. A quick and refreshing side dish. Read More

I like the garden fresh ingredients to this salad but it was just a little bland to us. I used a good quality dressing with it but I think I would prefer a homeade vinaigrette with a nice tang from vinegar. Read More

Very quick easy and tasty. I used garden fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from a local growers vegetable stand. I'm sure the quality of the veggies made a difference but this is a definite keeper. Read More

I usually make this with vinegar instead of Italian dressing and a little bit of sugar. My grandkids call this Bob & Larry salad (Veggie tales). I don't use cheese. Read More

This was a very good recipe! I left out the onions since my hubby & I don't really like raw onion. Couldn't stop eating it! Read More

I agree with other raters: This is a 4-star recipe, which can easily be elevated to a 5-star recipe depending on choice of ingredients and preparation. It is very simple and quick. I prefer to substitute 1 small finely chooped Vidalia or Peru sweet onion (1/2 cup up to 3/4 cup) and to substitute balsamic vinaigrette for Italian salad dressing. Be sure to drain as much water as possible from the vegetables/fruits before tossing with vinaigrette and cheese. After thoroughly tossing salad, let salad stand 10 minutes then drain excess liquid before serving or storing in refrigerator. Read More

Haven't tried the recipe but my family has been making this for years. We add blue cheese crumbles to the salad gives the salad a bold taste. Read More
