If it doesn't have quite enough zip, add more lemon juice (I used fresh squeezed). GREAT!
I just tried this recipe for the first time and took it to a potluck at church. People raved over it and several asked for the recipe. I had to leave out the parsley as I had forgotten to buy any (and I'm sure it would have been far better with the parsley included), but it didn't seem to make a difference to people. A very refreshing and healthy salad that I am likely to make again and again!
