“Which in Canada is Salade de pates au poivron, or so they say. I haven't tried this yet because I'm posting it for the WT 06. In the original recipe by Debra Weber, she says you can use 20 small Nicoise or the Kalmata olives, but it would not let me post that so I'm putting it here. This really sounds good.”
