Delicious! I made this with fresh green beans, and chopped plum tomatoes. I sauted the pine nuts for just a minute in 1 t butter. The dressing is really good. Very easy to make.

I just finished making this salad for tonight's dinner, but I don't think it's going to last that long! I used fresh basil and chopped plum tomatoes, and it's delicious! I keep picking at it, it definitely won't survive until tonight. My poor guests, they'll just have to miss out...
