      This was very easy to prepare and it was filling too! We enjoyed all the different flavors...I didn't realize till later that there was cucumber in the directions but not on the ingredient list...I had 1/2 of one available so I cubed it up and threw it in too...It really needed more...I found this tasty room temp and cold...would make a wonderful traveling salad for picnics and pot lucks...made for chef #28087 tag in My 3 Chef's tag game...:)
