    sugarpea's Note:

    Tasty and colorful celebration of summer's bounty with a homemade vinaigrette. A good way to use all those pear and cherry tomatoes from the garden or the farmer's market. This recipe will serve 10-12 for get togethers.

      Lovely salad - very light and fresh-tasting. Tested this for my son's birthday party (making a 1/2 portion) and it got a thumbs up by everyone in the family, including the greenophobe (my son HATES anything green) who is having the birthday. I was tempted to use a second garlic clove but restrained myself and am glad I did so - another would have overwhelmed the delicate taste of the peas and tarragon. Oh, this looked very pretty too. Thanks sugarpea - this is on the menu again Sunday. :-)

      I just made this for a church potluck and thought it was really good. Unfortunately I didn't have tarragon so I used a little fennel. It still worked, but the tarragon would have been much better, I'm sure. Also I totally forgot to add the basil at the end. It was good without, but that would have made it even better and prettier too. Thank you for posting this!
