Questions

Did You try this Salad by Jade Beutler? How did it come out?

Did you use the White Wine Vinegar? I ask because I had heard before once said, "Vinegar gives a bitter taste," but it has many health benefits. The "Bitter taste"; depends on how much you add into the food, how much you use when cooking or not cooking.

Would you make this Salad again?

Would you recommend this Salad to someone else to try?
