    I have made this before, but added balsamic vinegar and some crumbled bieu cheese (feta works well, too). - 10/25/13

    Good but missing something. I tweaked this a bit; eliminated the olive oil, basil, mint & salt. Added chopped celery.Then made a dressing of 5 oz. plain Greek yogurt w/ zest & juice of 1 lime and lemon and 1 tbl honey and added some cilantro (fresh in salad or 1 Tbl. tube in dressing). Much better! - 9/3/13

    I used Basil as I have it in the garden. Didn't see a need for the EVOO. I will eliminate it next time around. I also grow mint so next time I will try that instead. I also used regular brown onions not red, chopped it very fine. Maybe add the feta suggested by another Sparker. - 9/4/14

    I made it and hardly anyone would eat it. My adult son and husband took a little, but didn't finish what was on the plate. They said it had an "odd" taste. I think there should have been less basil in the mix and probably less onion, too. I don't think I'd make it again. - 9/4/17
