I copied this salad from a salad bar I went to so the ingredients amounts are based on what I use.If you want you can use more or less of each ingredients, depends on your taste spuds. Just experiment for yourself. Risoni can be bought from the pasta area of the Supermarket. Need to use Italian (international) parsley for flavour. Best made a few hours before you need it so the flavour can penetrate the Risoni. I usually make it in the morning if we have it for tea
