I'll try this again and refine the ingredients for our tastes. I wonder about onions, a combination of olives (I used green) and more of them? I couldn't find the pepper at my grocery store so I used sun dried tomatoes. I added 2 Tbsp sugar to the dressing to reduce the bite of the vinegar. We thought it was just OK. My neighbor, who finished it, really liked it...
