Now THIS is salad and just the way I like it, with simple, classic Mediterranean ingredients and a refreshing, understated, light vinaigrette. I detest heavy salad dressings, or those vinaigrettes heavy in vinegar. This is perfect, and one I'll be making routinely. I thought I had a cuke in the fridge but it turned out to be a zucchini, which worked out beautifully anyway. I used Kalamata olives rather than black, but I'm sure the black olives would have been just as delicious. I like a 3:1 ratio of oil/acid in my vinaigrettes, so I used 6 T. of olive oil and 2 T. of lemon juice. "Cold and crunchy" foods are generally not my thing, but this is simply outstanding!
