Sounds great, but I have two suggestions. First, I'd stick with the shallots, and second, try this with fresh spinach.. Well okay, one more suggestion: I'd load that salad down with grean and black olives and a bunch of pickled peppers and some chopped tomato and so on. Anyway, excellent recipe and thanks for that!
