    Beautiful salad. I added walnuts, chick peas and cranberries. The salad dressing I used was 3 tbs red wine vinegar, 2 tbs honey, 1 tbs olive oil. Shake and pour. Yum!

    Made this salad twice now and love it. I have decided to leave out the zucchini as I feel it goes too soggy the next day.

    So glad you enjoyed it!! A dressing sounds great! I had just been using some lemon juice and the leftover olive oil from the roast veg.  Another reviewer has used Balsamic.  Will keep it in mind and see what i can come up with. (:

    We LOVED this delicious meal last week, and my family has requested it again this week!  We added a balsamic dressing and ate it as a main meal. tmrc_emoticons.)

    Really tasty, but maybe there should be a simple salad dressing to go with it?
