Yum, yum! Nice Italian vinaigrette. This is very much like a great hoagie without all the bread. My little girl loved it! I made the dressing yesterday so the flavors could blend nicely. Thanks, GailAnn!

A classic, and a taste that is exquisite. I adore all things salads, and found this treasure whilst I was moseying through the recipe author's abundance of wonderful recipes. I knew that I wanted to make this directly. The vinaigrette was glorious in contrasting lemon, vinegar, and the bit of sugar to tie the whole dressing. I used fresh oregano from the garden. I had the deli cut some roasted chicken breast into a larger piece, thusly when I returned home, I just cubed this up and it was delightful, and not expensive at all. (I forgot to put the chicken out this morning - so when I went to the store, I instead just went to the deli) Had an end of some salami, so this was a perfect addition, again cubed. The only change I made was because I forgot the mozzarella, so instead I used sharp cheddar cubed also. Loved this in all ways. Made this again for dinner for DH. Gonna add some grilled mahi-mahi to his as a side. Thank you so much! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday tag game* June 2009
