    Does this recipe call for 3 heads of roasted garlic or just 3 cloves of roasted garlic? I feel like there is some instruction missing from this recipe regarding the roasted garlic. Anybody made this?

      A clove is NOT a head of garlic!

    Recipe is pretty bland. It needed some "zing". I added more salt. I added some finely grated parmissan. I added some finely chopped preserved lemon. An alternative would be some more lemon juice. I used brocolli florettes instead a lot of sliced brocolli stalks. All in all, with the modifications, it was pretty good. Absent the modificatons, this is not one of Martha's best. Answering pyegirl, it must call for 3 or 4 large CLOVES of roasted garlic; 3 heads would be over the top.

    I didn't have walnuts so substituted pine nuts. Also added some feta. Delicious!

    This is a good salad, but can get kind of expensive. I recommend roasting your own peppers. Hopefully you can either grow some or buy them locally when they are coming out of your neighbors' ears. Roast them in the summer and freeze or can them to last the rest of the year. Then you only have to buy the olives. Much lighter on the wallet. I freeze mine in little snack size zipper bags. nice portions.
