I made this with my Mom's herb vinegar. Yum! It was the perfect picnic lunch.

Default great is this??? I'm thinking that a half recipe would make a great meal maybe with some grape tomatoes on top. Mmmmm...can't wait to try it!

Thanks for the recipe!

I made this for lunch yesterday. Tasty. I think it will be even better today after the flavors have melded longer.

Sounds great but severely stupid question time!

I noticed that US measurements have "cups" all over them - we don't have this in the UK and I haven't the faintest idea how much a cup consists of?? How much weight wise is it? Or is there a certain sized object I should be using to get the right measurement? I really want to know so I can use some of your fab recipes!
