Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Very easy, few ingredients, and, best of all! Tasty! A change from lettuce and tomato...makes a colorful winter-time salad.

Top Review by French Tart

What a great combination of flavours and I have never thought of using the brine as part of the dressing! Great flavours and I did exactly as Caroline Cooks suggested and left this to marinate for 3 hours. I used caper stuffed green olives which added a great kick to the overall flavour. Thanks Caroline for another wonderful recipe! FT:-)
