    So simple and so easy to make.<br/>I followed the recipe but only added 1 teaspoon of the sugar, and it was fantastic. A lovely light, fresh tasting salad which the family loved. <br/>A great and easy salad to serve up over the coming summer. Thanks AZ.

    Refreshing! I used a little sugar,but not too much. I liked the red onion in it,

    Very much enjoyed this! It was just a little bit too sweet for us... I followed the recipe as written. Next time I'll cut the Splenda in half. We gobbled up the whole salad, so it was a hit at my house.

    Refreshing, simple, easy. I used just one teaspoon sugar and dissolved sugar, pepper and salt in one tablespoon hot water before adding the vinegar. Thanks for posting.
