We made this as written except with yellow onion rather than red. Loved the use of honey in the dressing. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

I enjoyed this salad. I did add a dash of white vinegar to the oil and used the dry basil and parsley as this was what i had on hand. I mixed together and poured over the salad. Was delicious and I served it with Crock Pot Cheesy Ravioli Casserole Thank you for sharing the recipe!

What's not to love about this salad. I really enjoyed the tang of the lemon in the dressing. I like my veggies cut large. Just like the way it looks in the salad. This will be made again. Thanks for posting. Made in honor of Sharon's DH.
