Oh my Lord !!! This was such a yummy salad and a such a fantastic dressing to go with it. Did everything as written but I did cut way back on the oil though and added extra capers....I love them. We found it had a lovely blend of the lemon and vinegar. It was actually a very quick salad to put together. I served it as a side to some manicotti's . I can see just eating a whole plate of just the salad and forget anything else. Will be making this salad often...Thanks so much for sharing Vicki.

The salad mixture was very nice, but I prefer a dressing with more tang and less oil. Loved the capers though. I would add 1/4 teaspoon salt and use castor sugar in place of honey (or leave sweetener out completely). The honey taste was quite strong, but perhaps it was just my variety of honey. Thanks for posting.
