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.
This was just straight out delicious! Everything I like, and still pretty good for me! Thnx for sharing it, Vicki. Made for a fellow Vagabond during ZWT 6.
This is a keeper, Just love the dressing Made for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs. Ps I finally gotto use the bottle of capers I bought months ago.
ZWT4: OUTSTANDING!! The lemon caper vinaigrette definitely pulls this dish together - WOW!!
This was fantastic!!! The dressing amazing!!! I just added oil until I thought it was right, being careful not to add too much. Made for ZWT4.
We enjoyed this salad very much. As with some of the other viewers, next time I will be using less oil. The only thing I changed was to leave out the honey - I never add it. As for the vinegar - I used a red wine vinegar produced by one of our BC wineries and it was wonderful. I won't be buying red or white wine vinegars at the grocery store any more! Thank you - we'll be enjoying this over the summer with fresh shrimp and a baquette :)
Excellent salad. I loved this dressing, and it went exceptionally well with the saltiness of many of the salad ingredients. That said, I decreased the oil to 1 tbsp to make it low fat, as I do with all dressings. With the stated 1/2 cup oil there would be too much dressing for the size of this salad IMO. I loved how the grape tomatoes added sweetness. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Good luck in RSC #10!
The salad base was great. We thought the dressing tasted more like a well flavored oil because of the proportion of oil to the other ingredients. I added more wine vinegar to balance it a little better for use as a dressing. Good luck in the contest.
Very nice salad combination. Did not really care for the dressing. A little too tart for our taste. We ended up adding additional honey and it was fine. Loved the flavor the capers gave it. All in all it well with dinner. Good luck in the contest.
