This salad is so refreshing. Really light and tasty. My hubby isn't into lemon so I adjusted the lemon juice and oil to 1/3 cup each. We thought it was perfect. Read More

Too acidic. I would next time try orange juice instead of lemon and halve the amount of mint. Read More

I grew up next door to an elderly woman from the Mediterranean. The flavors in this remind me of summers on the piazza eating her wonderful cooking. I love it! My only suggestion is that unless you like a really liquid salad I'd scale back the amount of dressing a tad. Read More

This is a great salad anytime of year. The dressing is lovely and light. I used the same amt of splenda instead of sugar and added fresh blueberries and some feta cheese the second time I made it and it was even more terrific! Read More

This was awesome! It's the only salad I've ever had actual cravings for. My husband didn't like it because he doesn't like mint. But if you like mint you need to try this! It's a little sweet a little sour and overall delicious. Read More

This salad was Scrumptious! I belong to a little secret club around here called Tweaker R Us sorry but this salad NEEDED some color so I added some of my fav's Feta cheese Kalamata Olives & marinated artichokes. I used some of the marinade to dress the salad. Instead of salad greens I found some Kale at the market love it!! Read More
