    Malriah's Note:

    Since I don't like salad dressing, I created this simple salad. Not only is it yummy but it is better for you since the only dressing it does have is the one it creates. After we finish eating the veggies, I like to strain the seeds out of the juice and use it as a salad dressing substitute on a green salad. Since you make it in a bowl with a sealable lid, it is great for picnics or potlucks. The prep time also includes refrigeration time.

      This recipe is excellent! Perfect for a hot summer day. I didn't have any fresh basil on hand so I used dried and it turned out really well.

      Kari - I love this simple salad. I use sweet onions (vidalia, Walla Walla, Maui or Spanish) I can usually find one of them. I use lemon basil (it's a small leafed basil and very good) Love this salad with a steak and baked potatoe. I confess I do like a bit of dressing but usually use a no fal Dijon/ Tarragon dressing - Thanks for posting this good salad

      As a Weight Watchers member, I am constantly looking for good, low calorie recipes. This salad was excellent. Since I didn't have fresh basis, I used fresh cilantro instead and it was quite tasty.
