I brought this to a cookout and it was a hit. Everyone really enjoyed the sweet flavor and the fresh cilantro. I will definitely make it again! It was also very easy to make!

This was very easy to make and delicious, refreshing on a hot day. I used red wine vinegar because I didn't have white wine vinegar and it turned out great!

This is an awesome recipe!!! Used it all summer long and it is going on the table for Christmas. Crisp, light and so very easy. Fabulous.

This was a great recipe! I used red wine vinegar in place of white wine vinegar (since I had that one hand). So crisp, fresh, and delicious. Paired perfectly with the Buffalo Chicken, as suggested in the magazine.

Made this last night for my husband and I earned rave reviews! It's so light, crisp, and flavorful. When you bite into it, it's sweet, then after you chew it has some tang. It's the perfect subsitute to a typical salad.
