I made ours with yellow squash, lemon juice, and green onion (instead of scallions). Love the colors and the tarragon! I quartered the recipe, but there was a lot of dressing. I am a bit confused about the arugula and put in some chopped lettuce and wish I had put in more. It is a tad tricky for me to rate this recipe b/c DH does not care for yellow squash or zucchini unless it has something crispy also in it to camouflage it. Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR tag.

Delicious and a great way to use garden herbs! Although I used the zucchini option, next time I'll try other squash (or maybe mix two different colored squach together) and use cherry tomatoes (I used whole tomatoes cut into wedges). I also used the lime juice option, but will try the lemon juice option at another time. Thanks for sharing this keeper salad!
