      Oh Kathryn you need to marinate salads. I do the same with cucumbers, red onions and tomatoes. When you marinate it brings out the flavors and also keeps the veggies longer. Eat it at room temperature. You can use olive oil, oregano, basil, parsley, s/p, cider vinegar. Awesome stuff.

      I have never marinated a salad before, I usually just put the salad dressing on it right before I eat it. I want to try this out! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.

      This sounds great! I'd leave the garlic cloves whole too :) Maybe even add a few more.
