This really is a simple recipe, but very tasty! Summer is a perfect time to make this salad because of all the fresh veggies available. I followed your directions in making this salad, but it wasn't specified whether to use fresh dill or dried. I opted for fresh dill, and increased the amount to 2 tsps. I marinated for approximately 8 hours (I had to have a bite), and it was really good, and still a good bit of crunch (which I like). Thank you so much for sharing this healthy, delicious recipe. It's a keeper!!!
