So I had to make this because it has so many of my favorite flavors in it and it didn't let me down. The sauce is really light but still flavorful and the salad is pretty filling, which is a total bonus. This is a perfect summer salad but I would make it any time of the year. Yum. (Oh, and I used cilantro instead of mint).
