      This is a great salad and it's quick to make. I added a few grinds of sea salt to the dressing and also added I few sprigs of fresh basil, chopped, for added color and flavor. Delicious!!

      Fantastic! I used a high quality balsamic(a much sweeter vinegar), doubled the recipe, omitted parmesan (making it vegan), added green bell pepper and subbed a sweet Vidalia onion for the green. I too added salt. I received a ton of compliments on this at a picnic and it will be a new staple for me. Everyone seems to LOVE it!

      This is really refreshing. I did add a bit of salt because it tasted kind of bland, but to each his own. I will make again. Co-workers enjoyed it. I served it with the "Tandoori Chicken". I didn't have any broccoli, so I added peas and carrots.
