From Chicago Tribune Good Eating section. This summery salad is packed with basil. And yes, it is 1/4 cup dried basil! Wow now that is a lot!

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.
