Plus, whether you use it as an appetizer with pita chips, or as a side dish for the main course, everyone is going to love our Summer Party Salad! It's full of vibrant colors, and so much yummy flavor that no matter how you serve this up, it's going to disappear nearly as quickly as it took to throw together.

Excellent

I have been making this salad at least 1 to 2 times monthly since I first saw it on June 4, 2015. I make it as the recipe is written, with exception of the English cucumber, and for my taste absolutely love it. It is so healthy and fits nicely into my Weight Watchers program.

I will use flat leaf or curly parsley for the cilantro, great northern beans for the chick peas and a little less garlic then this will be soooo good.
