I was a little wary about using the sugar substitute, but I had Splenda on hand from a contest and I had leftover Italian dressing; both that I just wanted to use up anyway, so I gave this recipe a try. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy and refreshing it was. I made a double batch for company, and everyone enjoyed it. I used uncut grape tomatoes, yellow pepper for color contrast and red onion, as I thought it would be a little more mellow than white or yellow. I'm pretty sure I could cut the dressing amount in half next time and it would still be plenty for this salad. I'll definitely make it again, since the leftovers were still good two days later. I pretty much lived on this salad for three days!

OhMyGoodness! Was skeptical about this recipe at first - worried about the sugar substitute - or actually just the added sweetness, in general! THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING! I served it on shredded lettuce, mostly as a garnish because of how colorful it is, with a fish entree and it was amazing! Forget it as a garnish! It's was a great side to the meal - was actually the star of our meal! Hubby told me to keep it - he ate two helpings! I would say definitely more of a summer recipe, but it is excellent! Thank you so much for sharing!

Delicious and refreshing! My fiance loves cucumbers and he ate a huge bowl for dinner and then had more for a late night snack! I have made this with green onion and red onion (depending what I had on hand) and both were great. I used lite zesty italian for the dressing. Thanks for a great recipe.

This is my kind of salad! I especially enjoy this during the hot, summer days when the tomatoes are so ripe and cucumbers so crisp--just add a Vidalia onion and I'm in heaven! Thanks for the recipe.

Tastes great! I added some fresh basil and omitted the green pepper (I didn't have any). I only added 1 t sugar, but will omit it next time and I think it will still be great.

Very tasty recipe! My BF and I made this yesterday and I am eating a bowl of it as I sit here typing. So healthy and delicious! We used regular sugar, but followed the recipe exactly other than that. Thanks for a recipe we will use often. : )

Love this easy and delicious recipe :) Made it all with vegetables I got at the farmers market. Made with Italian Salad Dressing (43522). Thanks for sharing such an easy and wonderful salad recipe MizzNezz.

I used too much dressing.... but after draining all the excess, lol, it was a great and tasty salad. I used grape tomatoes and ate the whole thing to myself in one evening since my 2 guests didn't like either the tomato or the cucumber, lol. Will make again, so simple.
