I made this for a Super Bowl party and it was a hit. I didn't have fresh mint so I used green onion. I think the longer you can let the flavors meld in the frig the better.

Just the 2 of us, but I did make the recipe as given . . . well, at least half of it was made that way! My other half like mint, but I don't, so when it came time to add that ingredient, I added half the amount to half of the salad & kept the rest of the salad for myself! Two very satisfied people, with a great salad! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar recipe tag]
