OMG, If you have beans, basil and tomatoes fresh from the garden, don't pass this recipe up. It was SO good! Only thing I changed was I went a little lighter on the oil and so my dressing was a bit watery (which only resulted in my wanting to drink it out of the bottom of the bowl when I was done...ha-ha!)

I made this salad as directed. I served it with homemade mac and cheese, the bright colors were beautiful. The dressing was a bit too much so I held some aside and used it to dip some bread in and it was awesome. I let the salad chill in my fridge for an hour, I would recommend serving the salad cold.

Very very very good, and simple too. A true summer staple. Next time I might add some pine nuts and call it "The Italian Salad" because of the colors :-D Thank you for sharing this easy yet delicious concoction with us.
