I now eat a salad daily...and young me is laughing at older me eating this. Made for ZWT#8~Spain.
This salad is surprisingly delicious. I hesitated adding the olives, but went ahead and was glad I did. What a great combination of flavors. DH polished it off. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will definitely make it again.
