This salad is absolutely outstanding! Such wonderful flavor packed into a light and fresh salad. I don't care for raw onion so left it out, otherwise made as directed. Filling, healthy and flavorful - just loved this - thanks for sharing a keeper!

Excellent! And I like that little extra touch of lettuce in my teeth. It shows that I'm health conscious.

This made for a light and wonderful lunch for me and DH. Such fresh flavors that really compliment each other. Like another reviewer I did add more lemon for personal preference but other than that made as directed. Love the color and presentation too. We'll be making this one again.
