Every time I eat at CPK, I have to have this salad! I love the tangy dressing, the fresh basil, the crispness of the ingredients. My husband got their cookbook for Christmas one year and I enjoy making it at home occasionally too!

Everyone at our dinner party loved this salad. Next time I will not mix the entire dressing with the greens. There was some salad left over and by the next day it would have been mush. I made the dressing 2 days early for the flavors to meld and then let it come to room temp before tossing with the salad.

This is a great salad dressing. It is flavorful without being too salty or overpowering. I have not used the salad combination indicated here. I've used the dressing with a combination of cured olives, leaf lettuces, cucumbers, tomatoes, feta cheese and onion - all chopped fairly small so that every bite has a taste of everything. Great!
