Recipe Notes

We created this salad using a mixture of a medium EVOO from the store - a Picual or Koroneiki is a great selection - but we also really liked it with our Basil Infused Olive Oil and just a touch of Harissa infused Olive Oil or Baklouti Green Chili Fused Olive Oil if you like a bit of spice. Experiment and find your fave - you know my only rule is that there are no rules!
