  1. I was a little wary about using the sugar substitute, but I had Splenda on hand from a contest and I had leftover Italian dressing; both that I just wanted to use up anyway, so I gave this recipe a try. We were pleasantly surprised at how easy and refreshing it was. I made a double batch for company, and everyone enjoyed it. I used uncut grape tomatoes, yellow pepper for color contrast and red onion, as I thought it would be a little more mellow than white or yellow. I'm pretty sure I could cut the dressing amount in half next time and it would still be plenty for this salad. I'll definitely make it again, since the leftovers were still good two days later. I pretty much lived on this salad for three days!
  2. OhMyGoodness! Was skeptical about this recipe at first - worried about the sugar substitute - or actually just the added sweetness, in general! THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING! I served it on shredded lettuce, mostly as a garnish because of how colorful it is, with a fish entree and it was amazing! Forget it as a garnish! It's was a great side to the meal - was actually the star of our meal! Hubby told me to keep it - he ate two helpings! I would say definitely more of a summer recipe, but it is excellent! Thank you so much for sharing!
  3. Delicious and refreshing! My fiance loves cucumbers and he ate a huge bowl for dinner and then had more for a late night snack! I have made this with green onion and red onion (depending what I had on hand) and both were great. I used lite zesty italian for the dressing. Thanks for a great recipe.
  4. Quick, easy, tasty, healthy salad! What more can I say -Loved it Thanks Mizz Nezz for posting it


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
