This colourful salad gets a 'five' because it is just so right. I did wonder about using less olive oil, but as I was putting the salad together, I realised it would be all the better for using the specified amount. The finished salad has a lovely glossy appearance; make sure you use a good quality olive oil for maximum flavour impact. Thanks for posting nannie jo.
Very nice salad. I used marinated feta which gave it a little more zest. Thanks for posting.
