This was great for a hot-didn't want to cook-day. The dressing is very light. I used basil but will try the mint soon. I halved the recipe for 2 of us.

So easy and so good! I was able to use herbs I grew - using basil and parsley. We skipped the wine but otherwise made as directed. Great addition to dinner and I am sure we will be making these again this summer! Thanks for sharing!

I doubled the recipe and brought 2 platters down to BINGO... I didn't use the wine. When I left I had 2 tiny pieces left to have for lunch today. I guess you know they were totally enjoyed by all my neighbors. I loved the vinaigrette and so did everyone else. Perfect with the other ingredients. Thanks so much for sharing it with us Patti!
