LOVE this recipe! I do not use any dried basil. That amount sounds overpowering. It is a deliciously light and refreshing summer salad. Great with chicken or seafood.
I worked at Marshall Field's for 3 years and ate this salad at least 3 times a week. This recipe is dead on! The only difference is minor. Instead of shredded parmesan the original is shaved.... but it doesn't affect the taste at all!
