  1. Oh how I love *oil and vinegar* this is SO simple, but so many complex flavors since the vinegar, salt to taste, and a bit of oil to drip over all the leaves, cucumber, tomato, and onion. I did use the croutons, and added diced chicken that I had left over from Recipe #298977. I could actually eat bowls of this, and just love the way it goes perfectly with practically everything. I might add some hard boiled egg too, next time! Thank you Melibug! Made for *I Recommend Tag Game* Fall 2008
  2. Since I"m a vegetarian I knew this was going to be just perfect. I've not used oil/vinegar on my salads b/f and so was anxious to give it a try. I normally eat them dry or w/a light spray of salad spritzers. I really liked the flavor of the oil/vinegar. I used all the ingredients you had listed except for the black olives as olives are not a favorite of mine. Used sundried tomatoes also. Thanks for sharing this with me and I'll go back to it often.
