  1. Just made this and yum, yum!!! I made a couple of small changes. I'm not a mint lover, so I used fresh basil. I'm on a weight control plan, so I used only 1tbsp of oil and doubled the vinegar. Very, very good. Thanks!
     
  2. Very good salad! Quick to throw together and very tasty! I halved the oil and doubled the vinegar (I like it more tangy), as well as added 1 tbsp of minced onion. Delicious! Thanks for another great recipe Yooper!

What can I say about myself that hasn't already been mentioned in the police reports? Just kidding! I'm a single guy who loves to cook! Good thing, or I'd starve or go broke eating out! I love to read, horror and mysteries are my favorite. Love music, (except rap) and I'm a huge Green Bay Packer Fan!
