This cooling summer salad is great for using up veggies from the garden. Great as a side with grilled meats or seafood or as a salsa to give grilled sea bass pizazz. *Prep time includes minimal refrigeration to set the tastes

This is a delightful salad! I will cut the oil in half the next time I make it however, the tomatoes are juicy and don't need that much oil in my opinion. I also added a can of drained, rinsed garbanzo beans, as my husband loves them. This is going to be served often this summer at our house, thanks! Carole
Very refreshing, served as a side with Flounder #171072. Will make again.
A cool refreshing summer salad which I served aside a chicken in white wine dish. I'm on a low carb diet and this recipe worked out well. I only added 3/4 cup olive oil, used plum tomatoes and used some dry dill because I didn't have any fresh on hand. Next time I'd like to add the garbanzo beans, as Carole in Orlando did. Great recipe!
