What a wonderful surprise. I knew that i would enjoy this salad, I just didn't realize how much. This salad has so much depth of flavor. We loved it. Quick and easy to make with awesome results. I can't wait to enjoy this daily in the summer with fresh picked tomatoes and basil. I couldn't get fresh basil so I used a basil paste, it worked really well in the recipe. Thanks for sharing another winner my friend. Made for the JOY of Vegetables.

This is certainly a tasty salad that is simple to put together. We enjoyed it as a side dish as well as serving it as part of our green salad. Thank you Teresa for sharing.

Apart from using large cherry tomato's, I followed this recipe exactly. A lovely, light and refreshing salad, that has a wonderful and yet tangy dressing. The dressing compliments the tomato's, onions and basil so well. I garnished with some chopped chives, and served with chicken. This make's such a pretty and delicious salad which we all enjoyed.
