I grew up eating and cooking Mediterranean food so the flavors remind me of home — and this recipe is bursting with flavor!
Technique tip: If you don't like the pungency of raw onions, place sliced onions in a small bowl and cover with red wine vinegar for a few minutes. This will take the sharp bite out of the onion.
For the salad:
Combine all salad ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and chill.
For the vinaigrette:
Combine all vinaigrette ingredients but oil in a small bowl. In a slow, steady stream whisk in oil until all is incorporated.
Prior to serving, toss salad with 1/4 cup vinaigrette to coat. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Serve salad well chilled.
