Another simple, light salad that works equally as an appetizer or a side dish. Welcome the flavors of summer!

This is a wonderful Mediterranean-type salad! The only thing that I did differently was to add chopped, fresh cilantro on top before serving. The flavors are all very fresh and it's great for summer! Thanks.
