Author Notes

Colorful, fresh and tasty, this salad recipe is perfect for springtime season. Usually, for salad dressing, I use my simple combo, fresh lemon juice, and extra virgin olive oil. This time, I decided to twist it up by using black truffle oil instead and adding dill as well. I was surprised by the outcomes, which brought up new surprising delicious flavors. —Rita de Guzman
