Hey Angie, I love zucchini in a salad. I usually grate it, but this is much more beautiful. I'm going to make this today!

A Thought For Food 20/5/10 16:10

Growing up, I always put capers on my bagels and lox. Unfortunately, my husband isn't a big fan of them, so I rarely get to use them in dishes.

With that being said, I think that I might have to make an exception for this beautiful salad. It looks so refreshing.

M D 20/5/10 16:17

Lovely looking caper salad. I love them. Beautiful!

All the ingredients in this seems like they would be delicious together. I'd even be willing to try raw zucchini for it. Though I'm a mite trepidacious. I've never eaten zucchini raw before. We'll give it a go and see.

Bridgett 24/5/10 21:46

This is so gorgeous and I love the simplicity of the flavors. It really lets the natural tastes shine though. I love this.
