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!

Very good salad! Quick to throw together and very tasty! I halved the oil and doubled the vinegar (I like it more tangy), as well as added 1 tbsp of minced onion. Delicious! Thanks for another great recipe Yooper!
