A tasty, quick fresh summer salad. I substituted Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing & left out the parmesan cheese. A quick and refreshing side dish.

I like the garden fresh ingredients to this salad, but, it was just a little bland to us. I used a good quality dressing with it, but, I think I would prefer a homeade vinaigrette with a nice tang from vinegar.

Very quick, easy and tasty. I used garden fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from a local growers vegetable stand. I'm sure the quality of the veggies made a difference but this is a definite keeper.

I usually make this with vinegar instead of Italian dressing, and a little bit of sugar. My grandkids call this Bob & Larry salad (Veggie tales). I don't use cheese.

I added a bit more grated Parmesan. I also added fine ground sea salt. This recipe is primo .

Haven't tried the recipe, but my family has been making this for years. We add blue cheese crumbles to the salad, gives the salad a bold taste.

This was a very good recipe! I left out the onions since my hubby & I don't really like raw onion. Couldn't stop eating it!

I agree with other raters: This is a 4-star recipe, which can easily be elevated to a 5-star recipe depending on choice of ingredients and preparation. It is very simple and quick. I prefer to substitute 1 small finely chooped Vidalia or Peru sweet onion (1/2 cup up to 3/4 cup) and to substitute balsamic vinaigrette for Italian salad dressing. Be sure to drain as much water as possible from the vegetables/fruits before tossing with vinaigrette and cheese. After thoroughly tossing salad, let salad stand 10 minutes then drain excess liquid before serving or storing in refrigerator.
