I really liked this as a side dish! I didn't read the directions fully beforehand (I do that from time to time), so we ate it warm--it was still really good! Check out my full review:

I have made this recipe twice and both times

my guests enjoyed the salad very much and asked for the recipe.

I thought this recipe was just okay. It was a little oily for me. I think I should have used a better olive oil. Got lots of raves at a luncheon tho.
