Super simple, and came out delicious! I did reduce the amount of olive oil to just 1/4 cup to reduce the calories per serving, but that did not seem to hurt it any at all. Great recipe, thanks! ...

I tried this recipe twice and it is such a nice combination of flavors I don't know that I'd change a thing. The basil is the perfect touch. I served this at a party and it was a huge hit.

I used mint instead than basil, it is just as good.

Holy cow, this is amazing! Made with zucchini and cucumbers from the garden, just a delicious summer dish.
