This looks juicy and delicious! Perfect for summer.

I love this recipe and I don't think people realise how versitile mint is with things like this. People see mint and they think of the cany flavor, but it's so much more sophisticated than that.

"candy" not "cany"

I sub green peppers for onions--too many of my friends are picky. otherwise, I love love love this salad and make regularly.

Mmm. Sounds so good.
I'm working with mint and non-"cany" flavors now, too. :D

Karina, I think it's perfect for summer too. Hope the house hunting is going ok.

Steven, I love the taste of fresh mint, especially in this and in tabbouli. I like a lot of mint in both.

Leah, thanks for visiting. Interesting idea to sub green pepper for onion.

Cookiecrumb, I'll have to see what minty things you're creating.

It looks perfect for this hot weather. I think I could just eat salads right now and be very happy.

Mmmm, perfect time of year for a recipe like this - yum!

Anna said...

this looks like my fattoush recipe, which is something we eat a lot in summer. but we make a very south-beach-diet-unfriedly addition of fried flat bread broken through the salad. mmmmm. i can't wait for summer again!!!

Kalyn said...

Sher, I agree. I'm in a salad phase. Good for my diet too. Sorry to hear about the AC.

Cate, thanks. I love to make this all summer when the tomatoes are good. (These tomatoes are from Costco though. No tomatoes here yet.)

Anna, you're sweet to think about my diet, but actually if I used 100% whole wheat bread, I could make this into fattoush and it would be fine for the diet. Great idea.

Drool. I love mint. LOVE

I love parsley and these recipes look great! Unfortunately the rabbits have found my parsley so this year I have been purchasing it at the farmer's market. I recently made cucumber tomato parsley salad similar to the one you listed. I didn't have mint but it was still tasty! I also have chimichuri (sp?) and parsley pesto on my list of things to make this summer. Thanks for the ideas!

Jenny, sorry to hear about the rabbits in your parsley. But luckily it is easy to find. Glad you like the ideas!
