Tasty and colorful salad. Very fresh-tasting. I used halved grape tomatoes in place of plum tomatoes. I also added a little bit of minced garlic. It was fantastic as a filling, healthy lunch salad. Thanx for posting!
Very nice. Liked the combo of ingredients for this salad. Used red-wine vinegar instead of white and also a dash of cumin.
