What a great summer salad, so light and refreshing! No mayo in this salad to spoil at your summer gatherings. I added the zest from the limes which added more flavor. Made for Round 3 during * Zaar World Tour 5* 2009 game for team *Genies of Gourmet*
very light and refreshing i grated the onion and cuke i like the fresh taste of cilantro with this . when i have fresh tomato i would add more just personal preferance .
I didn't have lime juice on hand so I made it with lemon juice instead, it was delicious! I also threw in half a red bell pepper diced, added 1/2 TB of olive oil to the dressing too. It was very nice, light and fresh!!
