“This is a wonderful main coarse salad to feed 4-6 people. The dressing can be made well in advance and chilled, and will become stronger in flavor with refrigeration time. This is the perfect salad to serve at your next dinner party, not only is is the most delicious salad, it makes a beautiful presentation. If you are serving more than 4 people, I suggest to double or increase all ingredients and also the dressing.”
