My husband and I tried this one out for lunch. We both thought it was tasty and very filling. Also would be good as a side for any grilled meats. Serves 4 as main dish and 8 as side dish.

This was a very quick and easy recipe and very tasty for a light lunch. I seeded both the tomato and cucumber to prevent the salad from becoming watery, otherwise I followed it as submitted.
