The author of the book says the first thing she tells her students is that a shallot is not an onion. Well in my household, if it looks like an onion, smells like an onion, and tastes like an onion, husband does not eat it! I did the recipe exactly as written however and it was quite tasty. I love fresh tomatoes and the dressing was a simple Dijon mixed with olive oil and it was very flavorful. Very easy to put together and delicious compliment to our meal. The salad consisted of fresh tomatoes, parsley, shallots and a Dijon dressing.
