I cannot say how this recipe would have been had I followed it precisely as instructed, but I did not have all the ingredients on hand, so I improvised. I thought it was amazing and fresh tasting! I used red onion chopped finely, since I didn't have shallots and I was missing some dressing ingredients, so I made a simple German-style vinaigrette, using German vinegar (essig), some Maggi (type of German soy sauce), salt, pepper, garlic powder, olive oil (EVOO) and water to help emulsify. I added parsley instead of the other herbs, as well. I will make this again and maybe try the dresing from the recipe next time.
