"We made this at work for a cardiac rehab luncheon for > 100 people. It turned out great! We had people requesting the recipe and also coming back for seconds. What a great combination."

"Excellent!! I used vanilla balsamic vinegar and blood orange olive oil! Added dressing right before serving. Also, didn't have mint so used fresh basil. Family loved!!"

"I made this last summer for a cookout and everyone loved it! Chilled it for a couple of hours first and it was very cool and refreshing. I have made it several more times since then for home and pot luck dinners and am always asked for the recipe. I make it like it is written except for using cucumbers from my garden when I can instead of English cucumbers and I do peel them first. It's easy to cut in half for just my family. Thank you, Roblynn!"

"Great summer salad and so refreshing. Next time I will peel off the cucumber skins as they seemed tough."
