"Wonderful salad for an afternoon luncheon. Great if made the night before. I serve croissants with the salad. I have had many requests by guests for the recipe. They LOVED it!!! Serve on crisp salad greens and garnish with tomato wedges, hard cooked egg wedges and parsley."

My 1st recipe using capers. Wandered around trying to find capers in the grocery. What IS a caper anyway? But my wife wanted this, so I found the capers and made the dish. Still have no idea wha...
