This was a great snack while passing the time BBQ-ing with friends! Followed directions, but only snipped in a "little" mint, not the full amount. The mint really adds a little surprise to it! ...

I made this salad for a big group of friends and nobody, including myself, liked it that much. I would suggest cutting down on the onions because the onion flavor really overwhelms the salad.

I've been making this salad (without the mint) for years-the mint was a new twist to the recipe that we all enjoyed!

The mint is an enjoyable change from basil or oregano, which are typically used in salads of this type. Great salad!

Perfect summer side dish, would be great at a barbeque. Found it to be a little too much liquid though, so next time I would reduce. Very tasty!

I didn't have mint, but it's fine without it. I would prepare the salad right before serving as it got extremely watery. Very tasty though.

I try to serve salads four or five times a week and get stuck in a real rut. This was not only different but delicious as well. I have worked it into one of my "standards".

I didn't use fresh mint leaves because I didn't have any but did use dried mint. We liked this recipe.

The whole family LOVED this side-dish! My toddler asked for seconds five times...so I guess he asked for fifths. (He's a little unusual, though--i.e., loves raw onions--which is why I rated this...
