    Carianne's Note:

    Great for light lunch or to bring to potluck for a low-fat alternative (easily doubles). 2 WW points, from the Secrets of Fat Free Cooking cookbook. Also, olive oil can be omitted to lower fat even more.

      I didn't have all the ingredients for this salad, but LOVED what I did have and could use. I really like the Vinegar dressing and my husband liked it too and he's not a big fan of vinegars. Thanks for the recipe, I'm definitely keeping this to have again!

      What is not to like about this recipe? My only changes were to use a whole purple onion, and to add 2 cloves of garlic to give it more flavor. I added a dusting of za'atar before serving, and it was a hit with everyone! Thanks for the keeper!
