READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sauce Lover

From Bon Appetit April 2011. Really delicious and easy salad, can be adjusted to your personal taste. Want more heat? Add cilantro and red onion or shallots. Make it curried by adding curry powder. Very versatile side dish.

I love this recipe and have made it several times after seeing it in BonAppetit. I use cilantro rather than basil.
