I did not care for this until I added 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup canola oil. I made it without at first and it was way too tart for me. I then mixed the sugar and oil together and blended in the vegetable/vinegar mixture. It was really good with the change.


I liked this recipe because it was made with simple ingredients and made a lot fast. It is crisp and cool. I added olive oil and salt and pepper which almost completed it. I think it still needs fresh chives or flat leaf parsley. With that said, it devoured at a cookout and seemed liked by all.


Definitely needs some seasonings: salt and pepper, maybe a little bit of sugar. Use less vinegar. It doesn't need to be drenched in the dressing. Just enough to give a bit of zip to the salad. Dressings should never be the focus on a salad. They are to "dress" the salad. Hence the name.
