    Cookgirl's Note:

    My sister in law brought the following fresh salad (using organic produce from our local farmers' market) to a family function and I loved the simplicity. Her version was served with one of the Newman's Own brand store bought salad dressings. I don't normally buy store bought dressings so I found this lime vinaigrette recipe on Food Network. I modified it by intentionally omitting all the herbs. Try your favorite dressing, preferably a light vinaigrette. Anything too heavy will overpower the salad.

      This salad was too sour also a little bitter from the lime. But maybe my lime was more bitter than it was meant to be. Maybe adding a a little sweetener to the dressing would help this taste better. I added a dash of organic apple cider vinegar and it made the dressing taste a little sweeter. I left out the other vinegars for religious reasons. I had to use garlic salt :X and added just a little with no additional salt. I used an unrefined extra virgin olive oil. The rest I followed without the basil a I didn't have any and I used grape tomatoes cut in quarters. I won't make this again.

      This was a good salad, and the lime vinaigrette was very refreshing. I was a bit conservative on the basil (since it was fresh, I was afraid it would overpower the rest of the flavors). But I think next time, I'll stick to the recipe and go with the full amount of fresh basil. It worked really well in this recipe.
