    As I have said many times, recipes are a canvas to paint upon. Make any changes that suit your tastes. I'm not a food critic, just a casual home chef. I sure don't know all the good answers.

    This sounds really, really good. Especially the dressing. I may substitute blue cheese for the mozzarella though....
