Found this recipe at Makes a wonderful packed lunch or main dish salad. For fresh herbs, I used all basil.

Bingo!!! This is utterly delicious. I just made this to take to a friend who has been very ill. I only hope there's some left for her by the time I deliver it this afternoon! The only change I made was whisking a bit of Dijon mustard into the dressing. I will post a photo later---it's such a pretty salad, and perfect for a warm-weather meal.
