Absolutely love this. We practically live on cucumber and cherry/grape/pearl tomato salads, all summer, and beyond (as long as we can get local tomatoes) . . . this is going to be a favorite. Of that I am certain. Looking forward to experimenting with different fresh herbs, and combinations. Thanks for posting this!! ;o)
