"Refreshing summer salad."

MY REVIEW

"I really enjoyed this recipe. I did change a few things in the recipe due to what I had on hand. I left out green pepper. I also used red onion instead of green onion. I used olive oil instead of water. I will definitely be making this recipe again. I really liked it!"
