"I love the mediterrean flavors so this was a salad from own heart. I used orange peppers, not green- the colors looked beautiful. Also, get french feta- it is so much creamier than the other varieties if your making a greek salad for a french bbq"
"very elegant and simple to make and serve. Your guests will love it. I chose to use a Gewurztraimer which is naturally very sweet with a little spicyness, and always a velvety smooth texture. I only used half of the sugar since the wine I chose could stand alone for sweetness. I also had some blueberries on hand and added them with the grapes."
"loved this salad. as most have said, it is light- no mayo. Best part is there is no disguising the potatoes with heavy mayo, just the addition of fresh herbs- tarragon and chives and the acidic shallots which brought so much flavor to this salad."
"Figs are in season so go buy them and make these for your next dinner party! I made most of the items from this episode for my last party and my guests raved all night about these. I followed the recipe to a tee, didn't change anything. The grilled figs were a big hit. Thanks, Laura."
