My sincere apologies to the entire BB community. I actually made this back in April when it was chosen by McKenzie of Kenzie’s Kitchen but I didn't have a chance to post before the accident. A shame because this was a great recipe. Doug and I both thought this was absolutely delicious.
Based upon some of the comments my fellow BBers were making, I decided to reduce the amount of oil and added just enough to achieve the consistency that we prefer. As you can tell, my salad was not overly dressed but rather lightly coated- just perfect to offer tremendous flavor while keeping the salad light. The original recipe from Ina can be found in Barefoot Contessa Parties! or linked here. Thanks again McKenzie for the great choice!
On a similar note, I regret to say that given the current situation we are in, I have opted out of participating in BBers for the short term. I am looking forward to rejoining the group in future though. Not only do I miss my being in the kitchen but the BBers have been making some amazing recipes over the past few months(ones I hope to make up in the future). Be sure to check them all out here.
