Epic meditarranean salad I'm a bachelor and rarely cook or fix anything even if I see appealing recipes in books or mags. But this recipe looked extra appealed, AND it had extra appeal to me in particular since it is so easy. I gave it a shot and am glad I did so - it was WONDERFUL. Sorry for the low quality photo. It's just a quick shot I got with my mediocre cellphone. Pros: easy, tasty Cons: tastes so good you won't have leftovers
