    Awesome! Simple and very tasty.  -  20 Feb 2012


    This was a great snack while passing the time BBQ-ing with friends! Followed directions, but only snipped in a "little" mint, not the full amount. The mint really adds a little surprise to it! We had Sea Salt Bagel Crisps, spread some garlic and herb soft cheese on it, topped off with a cucumber/grape tomatoes sliced small/onions from the salad and really enjoyed it! Thanks - even better than Mom used to make!  -  17 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've been making this salad (without the mint) for years-the mint was a new twist to the recipe that we all enjoyed!  -  09 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
