Very nice summer salad. The fresh mint adds a nice refreshing touch. I would just cut down on the cherry tomatoes next time.... perhaps use only the sliced ones. Thanx for sharing and good luck!
I loved the pecans and pineapple tidbits in this recipe. It added a great uniqueness. Thank you for posting.
