Fantastic! I served this on a bed of spring greens - mmmm! So light for summer, too!

OUTSTANDING! I *LOVE* this recipe. I stumbled upon this recipe by mistake and I am so happy I did. I just so happened to have all these ingredients in my fridge and it sounded so interesting I tried it. I used a seedless cucumber and I accidently forgot the lemon juice. I also doubled the "dressing" ingredients because I like things saucy. I ate this right away (without the chill time) and still thought the flavor was good. I'm going to the store tomorrow so I can buy more cucumbers and strawberries so I can make this again. This is such a lovely, light summer salad. Thanks for my new favorite recipe!
