Excellent. I made this with sun dried tomatoes, frozen corn, regular onion and freeze dried basil. I also added a little sugar to the dressing, our preference. It was crisp, just the right amount of tang and a compliment to our dinner. Thanks for the recipe. Carole in Orlando

Very nice, summery salad! It is colorful and filling. I made this as written and let it chill for a few hours before serving. Perfect for a side dish or for lunch. The fresh basil is a must! Thanx for shring.
