    JanuaryBride's Note:

    This recipe was posted in US Magazine in December. It says that this is one of the recipes that Marco Borges fixed for Beyonce and Jay Z for lunch during their 22 day vegan challenge. While I try to eat vegan every day for lunch (for health reasons) I had to assume this recipe would be a winner if meat eaters liked it. And guess what - it's a FABULOUS recipe!!! I did swap out lemon infused olive oil which I think it what put mine over the top, so if you don't have it I highly recommend adding a squeeze of lemon to your dressing. WOW was this palate pleasing. Note: If you like a lot of dressing and aren't counting calories, feel free to double the dressing.
