This was good! When I tasted the dressing I thought it was going to be terrible, but when it all came together it was very yummy! I think it tasted better room temp the first day than cold the second. Oh, and I had a beer with this (Blue Moon)- the lemony taste from the dish got stuck in the back of my throat for about 20 minutes and made it the most delicious beer I've ever had!

fabulous salad! though, i didn't like smoked salmon as much i had hoped i would... not evelyn's fault though! the dressing (i omitted the white wine), capers, tortellini (i used whole wheat), and red onions were delish, though! i just ate around the salmon a bit... ;) tagged and made for the think pink tag game in honor of breast cancer awareness month.

I thought the dressing was a little astringent, so would next time either leave out one tablespoon of the lemon juice or omit the wine. There was plenty of dressing too, so perhaps I should have just used less? Anyway, the salad was a nice filling lunch!
