    Irmgard's Note:

    This lovely salad, from "Pure Food" by Christine Cushing, is a sophisticated variation of Greek salad. The flavours compliment each other beautifully.

      Loved the sweetness of the shallots. I don't know if I would have liked it as much if I didn't have the Sherry Wine Vinegar. I don't think other substitues would have measured up. I used the spinach arugula bagged salad from the store, so the 50/50 mix would have really made it fun. Will make it again... the hubby had 2nds which is almost unheard of for a salad.
