    Really good, quick recipe! I didn't have onions in the house but substituted some chopped green onions and that worked well. Also, I used cherry tomatoes cut in half rather than a regular tomato. Lastly, I squeezed lemon juice over the entire salad at the end rather than just place lemon slices on it. Amazing and I will make again. As a note, I loved the cider vinegar as an ingredient in this recipe!  -  09 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a wonderful dish that I've already made a couple times last week. The only change I made was the second time I made it. I found yellow onions too overpowering so the second time I used green onions. It had a much nicer flavor and added a nice bit of color. I also added diced red bell pepper and it was delicious!  -  18 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really liked this recipe, though I agree with some of the other reviews that the onion was a little overpowering, so next time I will use green onion instead. I also added celery, which was nice.  -  09 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
