    Great recipe, highly recommended! ***Please note though that the ingredient list in the recipe omits the red onion!*** A little bit of very thinly sliced crisp red onion goes a long way to add another texture and flavor element to the dish. This hits all the essential food groups and makes a great simple and portable lunch. This recipe is a prime example of the beauty in Tuscan cuisine - dishes comprised of whole natural ingredients that are healthy, flavorful and satisfying! Love it.

    really fresh and lovely. Love the contrast in textures and the light lemony dressing. And super easy to throw together.
