  1. Add cherry tomatoes, red onions, fresh peas, cucumbers, fresh chopped mint, and fresh basil to a large mixing bowl.

  4. Mix the salad one last time and use a large spoon to serve.
Recipe Notes

It is better to make this the day before and let it marinate over night stirring every 3 or 4 hours. If you make it the day of place it in the fridge and mix every hour for at least 3 hours.

This is one step away from being a hybrid over the top Caprese style salad just add your favorite fresh mozzarella to the dish. Slice the mozzarella, lay on a plate, and spoon this salad right over the top. Add an extra drizzle of balsamic vinegar for the final touch.

For more of a Mediterranean style dish you can add feta cheese chunks and diced up Kalamata olives.
