      Good flavors but I made it ahead so it was very dry, had to add more oil. Would either make just before serving or save half of the dressing to refresh the salad.

      Very nice, on the whole with a good balance; however, the capers jarred a bit, and a second version I made without them was decidedly better. It improves even further with fresh garlic instead of the bottled stuff.
