    Made this beautiful salad today but left out the broccoli, added red onion & unsalted sunflower seeds- it turned out delicious! Will definitely be making again.  -  12 May 2017

    I really liked this recipe hot as well. To do it hot, I omitted the cucumber and replaced it with black beans. I either roasted it sauteed the other vegetables. I added broccoli and zucchini as well, but only because I had it on hand. Thanks for this lovely vegetarian meal or salad!  -  08 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
