    The amount of olive oil (2 tablespoons) is correct, but feel free to adjust to your taste! Watch Shira Bocar prepare this refreshing Clean Plate recipe:

    This is a nice fresh salad, but is there an error with the dressing recipe? 2 tablespoons of oil is 240 calories and 28g fat. Granted a healthy, unsaturated fat, but still. I reduced the oil by half and added a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to reduce the total kcals and fat. I think it is far too oily with 2 tbsp, but otherwise good.
