MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2013

"So great!!! I did make a couple changes though by using chives instead of onion since its what I had on hand. I also added three small very fine,y chopped cloves of garlic and a large handful of chopped arugula I wanted to use up. Because of the extra volume the arugula added I upped the dressing to 3 tbs oil and vinegar each. Oh and I used red wine vinegar and dried basil.It. Was. Amazing. I will make this again and again. It was easy and uses many of my farmers market stapled!!"
