This was a yummy salad with great flavours and textures. Next time I make this, I will use mnt rather than cilantro. I love cilantro, but feel mint would go better with the other ingredients. I'd also like a little salt and lemon or lime juice too.

We loved this. Bright and fresh tasting with ingredients that were readily available in winter. I cut back on the oil and only used about 1 tablespoon.
