I didn't like the idea of having salad dressing, so I used a high quality olive oil with really good olive-y flavour. It was very good!

there just isn't anything not to love about this. It is ultra simple, but just oh so perfect. I used provolone cheese and the dressing was Ken's Steak House olive oil vinegarette, but concept was the same.

We ate this for lunch along with Flemish Minx's Shrimp Pasta Salad #89551. This was a great Mediterranean luncheon. I did use the red peppers on mine on sour dough sandwich buns! Yum!!
