This was a good recipe. Just a bit too much lemon juice for my taste.

It turned out great even thouh I didn't have many ingredients. A little sweet for me but still good.

It is delicious! It's refreshing and satisfying. I added garlic because I love garlic. I didn't have fresh basil so I'll have to try this one again👌🏻🙃

Awsome!!! Refreshing and has a really bold taste. I did this recipe, julienne green peppers instead of cucumbers. surely will keep this recipe.
