    Very good! Skipped the capers (not a fan of them).

    Scaled this down for one tonight and it was so enjoyable - there is enough left for lunch tomorrow so may yet get a pic. I topped mine with croutons. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.

    Wonderful salad! I made the recipe pretty much as given, but might take your suggestion another time & add some chicken breast & peas! Did make it using the feta cheese & that was great! Thanks for another very nice keeper recipe! [Made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #42]
