I first had these as part of a beautiful salad that also included fried eggplant rounds and several types of olives, at the Locanda Rosati near Orvieto, Umbria, Italy. Wonderful for a spring antipasto or as part of a summer lunch.

    I admit I used some shallots I needed to use - but I did use the Dijon! Outstanding!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

      I used a smooth Dijon, and I now have a wonderful one with a little basil in it that would be really good i think.

        Phyllis - Gotta have a photo of this! I will make it & post one. Any preference for the mustard - a smooth Dijon or a coarse mustard?
