  10. I stumbled upon this a year ago or so…and I LOVE this recipe! It’s so simple, and yet so good. I serve this at our Preachers Conference for a salad with lunch, and have gotten compliments on it. My husband and I really enjoy this recipe. Once in a while I add some oregano, but usually just the basics, and only a very little salt, and fresh cracked pepper for a nice bite.
