I've never made this, but have had it marked as a "must try" for ages. It's from the Victory Garden cookbook. Preparation time is approximate.

This is very tasty and a hit with our family. I used a very good oil with lemon juice. After tasting I also added some vinegar. Definite make again for us. Thanks for posting.
