Yes, quick and easy and delicious! Ree Drummond made this for her helper Josh and her daughter for lunch. They had been out roping cattle. She served with pizza burgers and a French silk pie for dessert. Yum!

I made this exactly as posted, adding some fresh basil, as suggested. I used kalamata olives and halved my cherry tomatoes. The salad itself was a great combination, and the dressing was pretty flavorful. However, I did find 1/2 cup olive oil was a bit too much and made the dressing more oily and rather thin. I will definitely make this again, reducing the olive oil. Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR Tag Game.

Very good! I did leave out the olives as DDH doesn't care for them, but otherwise followed the recipe. Will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing, made for PRMR 2013/
