    I have been searching for a good different Vegan recipe to serve at a party and I have finally found it!! Do you think I could add spinach to this to bulk it up?

  4. This looks and sounds perfect for this 4th of July!

  5. This looks absolutely delicious. I’m going to make this. I love cucumbers, and this would make the perfect Summer side dish. Thanks for sharing!!!

  6. Mouth watering. My girls have recently discovered blsimic vinegar is GOOD! We love this said already and t hink we’ll lvoe it more wiht the addtion of the balsamic! Happy 4th! Linda from The Essence of Home link party.

  7. Jamie Kempf says:

    I added garbanzo beans to this salad and it added another nice texture and flavor to the salad. I think next time I may hold back a little on the oregano and basil, or use fresh herbs. The spices coated the salad a little too much for my taste. Other than that, this dish was still delicious!

    • Glad you liked it, Jamie. We made it again this past weekend (cukes and tomatoes are coming in!) using white onions and a tad more balsamic vinegar. It really is a delicious, simple summer salad.
