I liked the idea of mint in the salad because it sounded refreshing, but thought that 1/2 cup seemed like an awful lot. I only used a couple tablespoons or so (didn't measure it) but even so it was a little much for our tastes. I will definitely make the salad again with less mint. The dressing was very good. I didn't seed the tomatoes or cucumbers, either.
This wasn't to my taste. The vinegar was just to overwhelming. It does have a beautiful presentation though.
I don't normally like mint in my non-dessert dishes, but this was FANTASTIC! Tastes like summer. Use with Splenda, and you've got a very carb-friendly dish, too. I'll be making frequently! Thanks very much for sharing.
Refreshingly delicious! I used 3 large Kirby (pickle) cucumbers peeled, halved length wise and sliced. I didn't have any problems mixing them with soft tomatoes. The mint went perfectly with the tomatoes. This dish went very well with fried pork chops. I added cubed fresh mozzerella cheese to the leftovers for lunch the next day. Yummy!
I love this salad, but I do it a bit differently. I don't use sugar. But I do use 1 clove minced garlic, lemon or lime juice, and a yellow pepper (mostly for aesthetics). I generally serve it over couscous so that it takes up all the yummy juices. Simple, refreshing, and full of flavor!
This salad is excellent. My boyfriend thought it looked like something you would get in a restaurant. I also used less mint and I didn't have enough big tomatoes from my garden so I substitued some grape tomatoes...very good!
My husband and 4 kids all cleaned their plates and asked for more not a drop was wasted. VERY YUMMY
My whole family loved this recipe. I cut the amount of mint used to about half.
