A Middle Eastern inspired salad, with the flavors of mint and lemon. Very easy and quick to throw together!

Just made this and yum, yum!!! I made a couple of small changes. I'm not a mint lover, so I used fresh basil. I'm on a weight control plan, so I used only 1tbsp of oil and doubled the vinegar. Very, very good. Thanks!
