I am so glad I happened upon this recipe as it's already become a mealtime favourite and it's so quick to prepare! This year I tossed my flowers in favour of herb in some planters this year, and am always on the lookout for new and different full-meal salad ideas, so this recipe was a perfect fit. However I do admit that reading the ingredients I was sort of thinking hmmmm...well I have to say the flavour particularly on account of the lemon and mint is simply outstanding! This recipe is quite flexible as well. Sometimes I substitute red onions and add a tbsp of balsamic vinegar to the dressing. Thank you very much for sharing this!

I loved this salad! I was looking for an alternative to a mayonnaise-based salad. This really hit the bill! I put it over spinach and it was a hit with the family! I used less than 1/4 cup olive oil for a little less fat, but didn't want to make any other changes. Thanks!

Excellent mingling of flavors. I used solid white albacore tuna - best ever. My only changes were plain goat feta and an English cucumber since they were all I had. My 11 year old very picky eater loved this and keeps asking me to make it again.
