This is a wonderful and refreshing salad. The mint is a nice flavor addition. A nice balance of vitamins, and especially pretty served on a bed of tasty salad greens. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.

Delightfull - I only made one tomato but no problem scaling it back. I served it on a bed of lettuce, sweet onion, sliced ham and some cottage cheese on the side. This will look lovely layered in a clear glass bowl Thanks ellie_ for a keeper — Jul 14, 2005
