  • Very fresh salad! It makes a pretty good "salsa" with chips too. I added some garlic powder to mine for just a little more flavor. - 9/14/10

  • This came out pretty good- specially if you let it sit for a while. I didn't have cucumber but I'm sure it would have been tasty- I also didn't know what kind of vinegar was recommended so I didn't use any- I just added lemon juice :) I would make this again for sure. - 7/29/10
