    Altered ingredient amounts. This was a delicious salad.......the only changes I made was to use only 1/4 cup olive oil and no other oils.......I also used fresh cooked beetroot. I served it on individual salad plates. It looked as great as it tasted. I will be serving this again and again.  -  29 Sep 2008
