I liked this salad very much. I julienned the basil, but I think in future I would prefer larger pieces, so maybe a rough chop or use small leaves. I added a touch of honey to the dressing because of personal preference. Thanks for posting! Great idea!

So good!! I used grape tomatoes and sliced my mozzarella into thin rounds and tore into about 3 pieces just to make them around the same size as the tomatoes. Very good, ate every bit :)
