I love the flavor of this refreshing salad. A friend gave me this recipe and I pass it along to as many people as I can. Everyone that tries it loves it. Someone told me they put some of the mixture over their fish and/or chicken.

This was a very nice salad, served for lunch. The flavors were wonderful and they worked well with the main ingredients of vegetables and couscous. I followed the directions with the exception of a dash of cayenne pepper. I used cherry tomatoes cut in half, and that added to the visual appeal of this dish. Thanks so much for sharing this zesty salad recipe.
