YUMMY! This is LIGHT, FRESH, HEALTHY and packed full of FLAVOR! I used basalmic vinegar, sliced green mediterranean olives, extra fresh ground pepper and added sea salt. The fresh herbs are really nice in this. I loved it with the chicken but would also like to try it with tuna. It was also great topped with feta cheese. Made for PAC Spring 2007.
