I’m not a fan of cilantro, so I used basil (my favorite herb), and the dressing tasted like pesto and was lovely!0 Helpful

A solid salad. Though it felt hearty, I did feel hungry a little while after dinner.0 Helpful
Great, hearty salad. Probably helped that we used pancetta as our deli meat of choice!0 Helpful
