    Mami J's Note:

    This recipe is based on a Martha Stewart recipe, but with a few adaptations. The dressing actually called for 3 tbs lemon juice , not lime juice and 5 garlic cloves, but I'm not a big garlic fan. I also use part skim requeson, which is very similar to ricotta. When I can't find cherry tomatoes, I just add wedges of Roma tomatoes.

      I made this a while back and forgot to leave feedback. I really enjoyed the salad. I used a bit more garlic then what was suggested and fresh key lime juice. This was a perfect dinner - exactly what I wanted! Thanks Mami!!!
