      I thought this was pretty good. The ingredients are a fabulous combination. I don't think the carrots added any flavor so next time I will leave them out. I used about 2 1/2 tablespoons of fresh basil because I served this at a picnic and did not want it to be too overpowering. I will add more next time. The dressing did seem like it was missing something. ZWT7-Count Dracula and his Hot Bites

      While we liked this salad, we felt that something was missing from the dressing. After adding about a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and some salt, we liked it a lot more. We loved all of the yummy things in it- salami, cheese, artichoke hearts. Made for ZWT7- Emerald City Shakers
