This salad is so refreshing. Really light and tasty. My hubby isn't into lemon so I adjusted the lemon juice and oil to 1/3 cup each. We thought it was perfect.

Too acidic. I would next time try orange juice instead of lemon and halve the amount of mint.

I grew up next door to an elderly woman from the Mediterranean. The flavors in this remind me of summers on the piazza eating her wonderful cooking. I love it! My only suggestion is that unless you like a really liquid salad, I'd scale back the amount of dressing a tad.

This is a great salad anytime of year. The dressing is lovely and light. I used the same amt of splenda instead of sugar and added fresh blueberries and some feta cheese the second time I made it and it was even more terrific!

I had tons of mint growing that I needed to use and I found this recipe. It is so good! I love its light, simple, refreshing flavor.

This was awesome! It's the only salad I've ever had actual cravings for. My husband didn't like it because he doesn't like mint. But if you like mint, you need to try this! It's a little sweet, a little sour, and overall delicious.
