  1. A very nice combination. I used Manzanilla olives, and I think they made it really special. I reversed the oil and lemon portions for our tastes. Served 2 for big veggie eaters.
  2. I dont care for fussy salads with so many toppings you cant taste the freshness of the lettuce so this salad was perfect for me. When looking thru the olive bar at our local grocery store I spotted some Kalamata olives that looked very good so subbed those for the green olives. Loved the simple dressing, all the wonderful greens, and the vege's were just enough. Will make this salad again! Made and reviewed for Family Picks during ZWT8.
  3. This was great! I can't eat many premade salad dressings and usually do oil and vinegar - I really liked the lemon juice, oil, and salt/pepper combination and will definitely be using it again. :-) For ZWT8
  4. Fresh toms were replaced by sun dried toms because toms this time of year are horrible. Bought gourmet Spanish olives at the "olive bar" in the natural food store-forgot which variety-something a bit different...?? Worked perfectly for a Spanish/Mediterranean/North African themed meal. Be sure to use fresh ingredients, especially the lettuce! We had a wonderful head of loose leaf lettuce from our CSA box to use for this salad. Quality ingredients make a big difference in taste and presentation. Reviewed for Veg Tag/April.
  5. An outstanding salad. It is so light and refreshing. A mixture of spring greens with baby spinach was used for the greens. Fresh lemon juice is a must in the light and airy dressing. This was served with Recipe #400977 for a wonderful meal. Made for Diabetic Forums *Heart Healthy Eating*


  1. A delicious and refreshing salad: loved the different lettuces with the baby spinach leaves and loved the lemony flavour in the dressing. :) The only changes I made were to use kalalmata olives instead of green olives (a personal taste preference) and to add some minced garlic to the dressing (something I add wherever I see an opportunity to do so). We thoroughly enjoyed this salad with Recipe #364590. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Dreamer in Ontario. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
