"Excellent and refreshing salad, and authentic too. I spent a month in Ethiopia in 2009, and their salads tend to have sharp, sour flavours. I made half a batch, but the full amount of dressing so it's ready for the repeat salad I will make tomorrow. :) Used red onion, balsamic vinegar and an anaheim chilli. Thanks so much for posting."
"REALLY good salad to pair with a spicy entree. I thought it could've called for a bit more vinegar to give it a stronger taste. I would definitely make this again!"
"Fantastic! EASY to do!<br/>Light the light, fresh taste...made with prawns today! Was GREAT! WHOO HOO!<br/>I used red win vinegar and a hot green chili!<br/>DEFINITE keeper this recipe is for me!"
"I liked this recipe & think it will be perfect with summer's fresh tomatoes. The dressing is light & with a slight heat. Very good! Made for ZWT7."
"Enjoyed for dinner tonight. Light and refreshing. Liked the red wine vinegar and lemon mixed for the dressing. Thank You. ZWT7~Emerald City Shakers."
"A wonderful light and refreshing salad! I used red wine vinegar and a jalapeno. We quite enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing! ZWT7"
"For such a deceptively simple recipe this certainly has loads of great flavor! I meant to marinate it for a while, but in the end ran out of time and got it mixed together minutes before serving dinner. No matter--the flavors were terrific and the vinegar worked its magic on the raw onion, making it approachable for people like me who can't normally handle raw onion. I can't wait to make this again as the tomato season comes into full swing this summer. For me the lemon set this apart from other similar recipes, and I can't wait to try it with a pepper (skipped it this time for the benefit of little ones). Thanks for posting, Dreamer! Made for ZWT 7, for the Vivacious Violets."
"This salad was delicious, a nice twist on the traditional cucumber salad. I added a bit more lemon & red wine vinegar and let it marinate for a couple of hours--great flavor. I may try it with balsamic next time just to see how it tastes. Thank you so much for posting!"
"The hot pepper adds a nice kick and sets this cucumber and tomato salad apart from others of its kind.
I really appreciated that this salad was quick, easy and healthy. Made as written. Thanks for the post."
"Fresh, fresh, fresh! This simple salad was excellent. Perfect for a hot summer evening. It came together in no time. It had just the right amount hot pepper to really add some zing. I'll definitely make this again."
"What a great salad. I made this for the African Vegetarian Challenge for ZWT7. Very fresh and full of flavor."
"Yummy! I used grape tomatoes, baby cukes, and only half of a jalapeno... So easy and delicious salad with a little twist!"
"I made exactly as listed and I loved everything about this salad; the flavours, the colours and the lightness of the dressing/vinagrette. I will be adding this to my favorites of 2011. Made for ZWT 7 - Food.Commandoes"
"Loved the colors...loved the taste. First cucumbers from the garden. Great easy recipe perfect for summer. Made for ZWT7."
"It was too hot today to cook, so I made this salad. I used regular tomatoes, and jalapeno peppers, because I really wanted to bring some heat to the dish. I served it with couscous, so it made for a light, vegetarian meal."
"Very good and easy! We had it with fish but I think it will be wonderful with almost any main dish. For the hot pepper I used a jalapeno. Thanks for sharing!"
