    Made for a special family lunch today, it went down so well. Thankyou. The herbs make it taste so fresh and the dressing was delicious..  -  23 May 2013


    I've made this a few times now & it's lovely with fish or chicken and very versatile. I chopped the garlic into 3 or 4 pieces each & removed it after the salad had been sitting for a couple of hours (so not to get garlic breath). Have also added olive oil & used dried herbs when out of fresh & this works well too. The dressing you get from this salad is so tasty, believe me even if the tomatoes are a little hard nothing will be left.  -  14 Mar 2010


    I omitted the green pepper because I didnt have one. Substituted white wine vinegar for balsamic and added fresh oregano. Macerated overnight and added some grated Parmesan. Delicous.  -  22 May 2017
