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

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

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!

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

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

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.

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

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