Wow, what a good salad. I halved the recipe since I was the only one eating it. The only change I made was wide egg noodles since those are what I had on hand and it still turned out great. I've never used balsamic vinegar before and I was so surprised at the wonderful flavor. Thanks for the recipe! I'm sure I will be using this one alot once my garden gets going.
