Kalamata Olive and Cherry Tomato Salad

After trying many combinations of Flying Olive Balsamic Vinegars and Olive Oils for this, I think it’s personal preference on which you choose. My favorite is Flying Olive Garlic EVOO, Neapolitan Herb Balsamic, and a splash of Oregano Balsamic for tartness. Barb L.
