This is so refreshing! It may seem odd to try to recreate a summer salad in the middle of winter, but I thought it might be worth it. It was. I didn't have trouble getting any of the veggies, but could not find fresh basil for love nor money. So, I did have to use dried basil, which, I know is not the same. The salad is still very good! I'm looking forward to making it again in season. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
