A wonderful salad with strong flavours. I wouldn't have a salad any other way.

Top Review by Miss Annie

Simple things are always the best things, and this recipe was very good. The flavors and textures are a classic mix. The dressing simple, but complimentary to the salad ingredients. I wouldn't make this in the winter as the tomatoes have no taste, but farmer's market tomatoes in the summer can't be beat. Excellent recipe, Evelyn, thanks for sharing the recipe.
