    3. 3
      Drain and rinse under cold running water. Drain thoroughly.
    4. 4
      Mix the vinegar, oil, salt and a bit of pepper in a bowl and beat together with a whisk.

      I made this salad and loved it. Instead of using the shallots in large pieces, I thinly sliced them. I also used a little more pepper than what was called for because I like it hot! hot! hot! :) Very nice recipe!

      The recipe called for slicing the shallots in half. I chopped them up. There was a better mixture that way.
