From Canadian Living, September 2011. This cool, refreshing salad makes a great side dish for grilled fish or chicken on a sultry summer night.

We liked the flavors in this salad. The veggies were crisp & the sesame flavored dressing was a nice touch. Next time I plan to add a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes to add a tiny spark of heat. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
