    Very tasty and a great addition to a meat and potatoes meal or for a picnic if you use the italian dressing!

    I've been making something similar for years. Fresh and delicious! I add zucchini slices and small chunks of mozzarella cheese, then top with fresh basil when ready to serve. Thank you for a reminder.

    I used 1 pint grape tomatoes which I cut in wedges, 1 shallot, thinly sliced, as I did not have a red onion available and 1/3 to 1/2 cup of prepared Italian dressing. I LOVED this recipe! It's a keeper!

    We love this recipe! So easy, economical and looks great, as well. I can make it ahead and keep in refrigerator and our guests enjoy it . I have to peel the cucumber because it causes acid in my tummy. Blue's Mom

    I make them all the time. However, much better with extra virgin olive oil and a splash of white wine vinegar. Finish with sea salt and fresh ground pepper and a sprinkle of sugar to taste. The dressing is so good and fresh you will want to drink it!

    This is the way we've made salads for the last hundred years and it's a great "go to" salad but truly just a regular salad.. nothing special "Italian" about it.

    I use to work for a restaurant that made this but they added green peppers to it also. It was always gone at the end of the night. I have made that way for potlucks now and everyone loves it.
