A wonderful summer salad, added a few hard boiled eggs for extra protein, some crunchy french bread and we were set. Thanks for sharing

This contains all my favourite salad ingredients, so it has to be a 5 (or more if I could) star recipe. It is made a bit different with parmesan rather than feta and I liked that change. When I set out to make it though I discovered I was out of balsamic vinegar-I used red wine vinegar, but reduced the amount to tablespoons as it is not as mellow as balsamic. That worked perfectly well and I would do it again as it is much cheaper anyway.
