I served this salad in 1993 (this is 2010), and the simple salad and dressing is STILL my favorite. It is low-salt, low-calories, but MAXIMUM interest, with potatoes, olives, capers, basil, and a dressing that is all flavor, not oily or salty.
Islander Salad (Insalata isolana)
From EatingWell: May/June 1993
Here, crisp lettuce is tossed with ripe tomatoes, potatoes, capers, basil and olives. Tomato juice is the secret ingredient in the dressing.
