So when I was paired with Kavitha of Foodomania, I was sure I'd lucked out. There were so many recipes that I could have tried out, but this one sort of fell into my lap.
I made a few changes to the salad, because well, that's what I had in my refrigerator and instead of using lettuce, ended up using Chinese cabbage, which might I add, added quite a crunchy texture to the salad. Also in the dressing I used balsamic vinegar instead of red wine, only because I totally adore balsamic. That said, I spent a lot of time on her blog, thinking of things I should make at leisure, because she has some lovely recipes.
Anyhoo, this is a super simple salad and I hope more peeps would want to make it.
