8/7/08 Only three stars because it needs a little tweaking for our taste. The basil was too strong and the rest of the dressing was too bland. Marinating would improve this, which we did not do. The salad was much better the next day. I would reduce the olive oil (1T?), increase the lime juice (1 lime or 4t?), and eliminate the salt. (It makes the cucumbers weep.) Red or green onion would be good in this. Changing from basil to cilantro, you have a different salad. I will definitely make again and report. 8/24/09 Use juice from 1 lime, 1 T olive oil, 1 T dried basil, 2 sm green onions, and omit salt. Marinate several hours or overnight. Delicious! With these changes it is 5 stars.
