Comments on this Recipe

This is a great summer salad. I left out the olives and didn't even miss them.

What is sriracha sauce? And for those of us who aren't big fans of arugala, would fresh spinach work as a substitution?

Sri Racha is the red chili sauce with the rooster on the bottle. You can usually find it grouped with other Asian foods or hot sauces. In small doses it makes a nice addition to many recipes.

I made this for lunch today and I just now realized that I forgot to add the sriracha. Hope it's still yummy!

Haha I forgot to add Sriracha to mine too! It was still very tasty :)

This recipe has become a new staple in my lunch routine! I love the lemon/mustard/basil vinagrette with the arugula! I only use about half of the suggested amount of olive oil, and I substitute goat cheese for feta- delicious!

A wonderful salad with a great flavor!

I used Portuguese Peri Peri sauce instead. Excellent! More of a Mediterranean feel.

I doubled the tomatoes. You really can't have two many tomatoes. :)

I absolutely love this salad, it's very refreshing and full of tasty, tasty ingredient that blend together really well. A new favourite in my roaster of recipes.

What a information of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious familiarity on the topic of unpredicted feelings.
