For those of you who might be interested in trying this recipe I thought I would give you an update on how mine turned out the other day. I found that after making the dressing it needed quite a bit more red wine vinegar ( I used an aged red wine vinegar so that might have made some difference) and a small pinch of sugar. I bought a nice piece of french feta for the salad, but everyone raved about the dressing.

This recipe sounds like the perfect summertime meal. I love to make salads in the summer when it is hot outside. Thanks for the recipe.

Great hint. Thanks for helping me out with preparation of salads being made everyday for lunch. All told me too many olives. This is problem the reason why? Tone down the flavor. Thanks for sharing.
