What a great summer salad!!! So light and refreshing. A great make-ahead dish when you are having a crowd over. Everyone loved the combination of ingredients. I especially liked the garbanzo beans mixed in with the cucumbers! I have made a copy of this to put in my "keeper" recipe notebook. Thank you so much for sharing this great salad. :-)
Quite good, I only wished I'd made more! Next time, I think I'll add some fresh tomatoes.
LOVED this! It was a perfect lunch along with a small cup of yogurt. I made three changes: first I skipped the olives (just not a big fan) and secondly I used a total of 2 cukes just b/c I had them. Lastly, I used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil. It was great! Plenty of dressing for the larger salad. Thanks for sharing!
