This salad is delicious and refreshing - the dressing is perfect! A perfect accompaniment to a summer meal, or a satifsying meal in itself if you are not too hungry. My family loves it!

I have made this recipe at least 10 times and it is fabulous!! If it lasts more than a day, every day it sits in the fridge, it gets even better! The flavors of this salad fill the mouth with a wonderful zesty taste. I have made it for company and everyone loves it! But, if you don't love olives, you may not like it. Kalamata Olives are pretty strong flavored. I love them!

DILLICIOUS! Just thinking about this salad makes my mouth water! I made it immediately when I got home from our local Farmer's Market. I used a red onion and fresh dill from my herb garden. Use fresh dill if you can. If you like dill, you will definitely enjoy this salad. The Kalamatas add a wonderful flavor contrast.
