    With our own strain of Asian spearmint and our neighbor's perfect green beans, we made this recipe to accompany the grilled steak we indulge ourselves with occasionally. The combination was fabulous!

    We loved this salad served at room temperature. I did cut back on the sugar, as it seemed too much - we used less than a teaspoon and it was perfect! I must admit I had my doubts about the lemon drizzle, but it wouldn't have been the same without it. Delicious! Thanks for posting. Made for CQ4 play, Team Happy Campers.
