Tasty & easy. Made just like the recipe instructed. I can see this stuffed inside a pita or rolled in a tortilla. I'd never had Newmans Olive Oil Vinegar dressing. It is delicious on it's own and also with the added ingredients in this salad.

Took this to a Holiday dinner, they were serving enchiladas. The salad was very different and complimented the meal well. Had a few requests for the recipe too! Thanks for sharing!
