Excellent! I did not put the capers because I forgot, and since this was used as a side dish, I left out the lettuce. I used champagne vinegar with a splash of balsamic and plenty of dried oregano. The dressing was so simple but very tasty! I'm not a fan of olives, but they worked really well in this salad. Also, my 9 year old daughter said that this was the first time bell peppers have tasted good (I used a red one). This, from a kid who has tried to get out of eating them in virtually every stir fry or salad I've put them in, was a huge surprise. All of the ingredients work well to balance each other out and create a very flavorful and satisfying mix.
