There was obviously a mistake on the pepper part of the recipe. It should have read teaspoon, NOT tablespoon! I put half of what they called for and it was SO peppery we ended up throwing it away - which is too bad, because other than that it had a great flavor and was quick and easy to make. I just couldn't handle my lips burning after each bite from the pepper! I'll try it again!

My whole family LOVED this recipe! It was a bit peppery.. but we love pepper! I also marinated some diced tomatoes in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and a teaspoon of sugar for a few hours. I then drained them and added them to salad before serving. It was delicious! I will definitely be making this salad again and again during the summer heat! Thank you for sharing! :)



I forgot the butter, had to use dried herbs instead of fresh, and it was still DELICIOUS! I took one cook's review advice and used tsp's of pepper instead of Tbsp's -- good idea. How about cracked peppercorn melange for color, and maybe a Tbsp of balasamic in the last step for fun?
