Enjoyable salad. Would probably add another element like baby spinach or asparagus next time and garlic would have been a great addition. - 08 Nov 2013


Have made this several times now. It is tasty and most importantly very, very easy.. - 30 Dec 2009


Used different ingredients. Try adding 1 red onion (chopped and processed with the sundried tomato and basil). At the end add 1/2 cup black olives for a fuller flavour. - 30 Dec 2009
