Great salad from Bon Appetit. Time includes 2 hours for marinating. A Pacific NW favorite.

This was a very refreshing salad. I cut back on the olive oil and added a little more balsamic. I love balsamic vinegar! I also love olives and capers so I knew this would be a great salad. The salmon came out perfect. The tomatoes and zucchini came from my garden. It was 100 degrees yesterday so this salad was perfect because it is light and refreshing. Thanks!
