Very tasty salad! I added a teaspoon of minced garlic, and used regular chopped onion. The basil makes this a standout! We had this with scallops and pasta. Thanks Sue!!

This is a great salad. I used balsamic vinegar and Thai basil. I served it as part of a cold buffet on a hot summer day. Thanks for a dish I will be making again.
