My husband and I ate this entire batch of salad in one sitting, paired with roasted red potatoes and grilled shrimp skewers. I shoveled most of the salad into my mouth before I remembered the shrimp and potatoes on my plate; mmming and smiling all the way through. We were both smitten.

I brought this salad to my parents house yesterday and everyone loved it! This is definitely going into the regular rotation all summer long. Think: homegrown cucumbers and tomatoes :).

      Hi Rita, unfortunately I wouldn’t be able to translate into French. The best I could suggest is using the google translate tool. Reply

    I made this tonight. I halved the recipe and I used avocado oil instead of olive oil. It was delicious! Hubby said it would make a good salsa if it was chopped smaller and had jalapeño in it. Reply
