Made as written, but needed to tripple the dressing. I tasted it 5 minutes after sitting and it was very good - nice blend of flavors. Served it 30 minutes later and it was spicy HOT- due to crushed pepper flakes. That was so predominate that the nice flavor was barely noticeable. I like spice things, but a burning feeling instead of the once great flavor was not exciting. I will make it again but count out 8 crushed pepper flakes instead of the 1/4 tsp, especially if it is going to sit past 15 min. I'm also going to try adding 1 T canola oil, next time.
