I was looking for a quick and lite hot pasta dish and after reading this recipe, I decided to try it hot as an entree. I added a few more fresh tomatoes and served it over penne ...it was fabulous! My son had seconds(something he rarely does).
This salad is excellent and a nice change of pace from the usual pasta salad. I wasn't sure what Kalamata ollives were, so I used green olives (and my dh said I usually don't like olives but in this salad they are great). The only other changes I made was I used a green pepper instead of red (because I had a green) and I didn't have any wine so I used rice vinegar. I also didn't have any thyme, so I used basil. Even with all my subsitutions this salad was a major hit at the dinner table. As this is definitely a keeper, next time I make it I will use the ingredients as written. Thanks for a great salad.
I really liked it... but not a whole lot of people ate it at the party. They said it didn't have enough "something". Probably salt! Everyone wants salt. Well I liked it. Thanks!
