I didn't care for this at all. Even after adjusting the oil/vinegar ratio to a more pleasant 3:1 oil to vinegar this was acrid flat and tasted of little else than the basil. Read More

Very good salad. I just used bagged spring medley lettuce and cut the peppers into strips instead of rings. Read More

This salad is fantastic and received rave reviews by recent dinner guests! I took the suggestion of another reviewer and added toasted pine nuts and crumbled feta cheese before serving which almost makes it more of a Greek salad and it was excellent. Definitely a keeper and one I plan to make frequently! Read More

My guests at a recent dinner party loved this salad. The bowl was completely empty! I could not find every type of lettuce so just increased the quantity of what I could find. I believe the grapeseed oil has a milder flavor than olive oil contributing to the success of the dressing. Read More

This was an excellent salad. Will definitely make again. I couldn't find grapeseed oil so I used olive oil. I also couldn't find escarole so I used an extra 1/2 cup each of radicchio and red leaf lettuce. Read More
