    This is a wonderful example of the right ingredients and the best tasting Spring treat as you will ever have. I love the dressing, I whirled mine in the blender and it produced a frothy light dressing that stood out and enhanced the tomato, onion, and chives. I also had fresh mint, the I set perched atop and this plate of goodness was simply and peacefully gobbled up quickly. So easy and the taste is outstanding. Thanks, Engrossed! Made for "Spring Spectacular* April 2008

    I did not use mint or chives, as my husband would never try it, and I chopped the tomatoes and onions instead of slicing them. The dressing was phenomenal! Thank you so much for this delicious salad.


I'm not as active here anymore, but you can find me playing at the new I'm not a great photographer, but I love to take food photos with Freddy Cat to bring a smile to people's day. I love to cook and share good food with other people. I have a very large collection of cookbooks. I used to enjoy being able to look up recipes on Zaar by ingredients I had on hand. I miss the Zaar tag game community. Everyone was so nice, and it was super fun. Ah, the good ol' days.
