We loved this. A nice way to use fresh veggies from the garden. You can make the night before too.

Fresh is definitely appropriate for this Mediterranean-styled salad. Easy to prepare and perfect for a summer dinner!

I loved it. The only changes I made was not to use the mint as I did not have any and used ripe olives in place of the greek ones.
