For caper lovers only! This is one of those rare recipes that can't be improved on...AT ALL! Seriously, if you love capers, you must try this easy-to-make salad. I think the dressing would be good over baked or grilled fish of any kind. Thanks for sharing in the Please Review My Recipe game.

Very nice and easy recipe. My date loved it, and so did my friends. They thought the salad was totally amazing. Definitely a keeper (even though I omitted capers out of the recipe).

Great recipe. Added some cooked shrimp to indulge ourselves. And slightly more balsamic and slightly less lemon. Light, healthy, delicious. And super-fast. Perfect!
