We loved this delicious salad. I think the author meant 1/2 cup red wine vinegar as this amount was perfect. All the flavors blended very well. Next time I will add some fresh parsley. Will definitely make again! Read More

Way too much vinegar. A dressing should kiss the salad it shouldn't drown it. The flavors of the vegetables should still come through not the flavor of vinegar. Try with fresh olives instead of bottled. That makes a huge difference in taste also. Read More

I brought this to a party and it was a big hit - with such a big salad there was none to bring home! I did alter the dressing a bit by adding a dash more lemon juice and a little over a tsp of salt. Read More
