“This recipe may be simple but its flavor is big and juicy. I think it would be fabulous alongside spicy Asian curries, quick stir-fries, herb-roasted dinners -- and yes, it would be perfect for picnics. This is a delicious make-ahead picnic salad. Make more than you think you'll need, because you just might want some for breakfast.”

We loved this, but I made a couple tiny changes - used white wine vinegar and white balsamic vinegar, subbed honey for the agave and reduced it to 1 tsp. I also used red onion and left it in slices (easier for picky eaters to remove), and I have an assortment of heirloom cherry-sized tomatoes, so I just halved them. Pretty, colorful and delicious! We could have this every night!

I liked this salad a lot. I had to do some variations- didn't have champagne vinegar, so I used apple cider vinegar instead. Also used roma tomatoes instead of heirloom. It did have a strong vinegar taste, but I really liked this and so did my husband.

I used 2 large cucumbers instead of one large and two small. I used what tomatoes and onion I had on hand--which was 2 romas and a purple onion. I used white wine vinegar. I thought the onion and the vinegar flavor over whelmed the taste of the tomato and the cucumber but over all it was pretty good. I think this would work better as a part of a larger salad involving some lettuce and grilled chicken to round out a meal. After the flavors meld and the juices start to come out, there is a great dressing that shouldn't go to waste!
