"This recipe may be simple but its flavor is big and juicy. I think it would be fabulous alongside spicy Asian curries, quick stir-fries, herb-roasted dinners -- and yes, it would be perfect for picnics. This is a delicious make-ahead picnic salad. Make more than you think you'll need, because you just might want some for breakfast."

We loved this, but I made a couple tiny changes - used white wine vinegar and white balsamic vinegar, subbed honey for the agave and reduced it to 1 tsp. I also used red onion and left it in sl...

I liked this salad a lot. I had to do some variations- didn't have champagne vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar instead. Also used roma tomatoes instead of heirloom. It did have a strong vin...

A nice refreshing summer salad. The longer this recipe can marinade, the better it gets. The flavors of this salad come together really well. Thanks Pinkmonkey19 for sharing.

This is a fantastic recipe and while the picture shows it as a salad with slices of cucumber and onion, I finely diced the cucumber, tomato and red onion which made it more of a salsa-type mixtu...

Delicious! I had a champagne pear vinegar on hand I used. Definitely leave time for e salad to sit in the marinade, overnight if you can. Extremely easy to make and very tasty to boot. Will defi...
