This is a great recipe that got lots of compliments at my potluck hike. The hubby really liked the white beans and while the dressing quantity was a bit more generous than I feel was necessary to adequately cover and marinate the salad, it was still a relatively healthy dish. It did take longer than the estimated time posted here, about 40 minutes, even though my tomatoes were so fresh, I barely had to seed them. That said, it is a relatively easy dish to make and one I will likely prepare again. I agree, the uniform chopping does make for a very nice presentation, although I do hate to waste any part of fruit and vegetables by seeding them.

Very nice salad for hot summer days. I had to sub the white beans, using red instead. Everything else was as written. Next time I may try white beans, red tomatoes and yellow squash. Maybe even add black olives. Yummy and looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow

It is not summer, but this reminded me that it is only five months off! Very refreshing and pleasant salad.

I made this recipe as exactly as written and loved it. It was quick to prepare, inexpensive, healthy and delicious. That definitely makes it a keeper in my book. My husband and I had it for lunch two days in a row, and I agree with another reviewer that it was even better the second day. The fresh basil is essential to this salad, I don't think I would substitute dry. Thanks for posting!

I added a little more mustard than it asked for and only had red wine vinegar, and it came out stellar! It's one of my most favorite recipes to take camping.

I downsized this recipe to only make enough as a side dish for hubby and I with some baked salmon. Rather than stick with a uniform dice for the veggies, varied their size and shape for added interest on the plate. I also used cherry tomatoes instead of roma and did not bother to seed. We liked the tang of the dressing on this salad and found it very refreshing, but filling on a hot summer day.

This was very tasty and easy to put together. Although it is not something I would want often (too healthy, I'm afraid ;) ) I will probably make it a couple of times again in the hot days of summer.

This salad was delicious. I would definitely recommend using fresh lemon juice instead of the bottled variety. It gives it such a fresh, summery taste. I may have to try the dressing on other salads as well. Excellent.

Just beginning to harvest perfect-sized zucchini from the garden, and just 1 tomato. Prepared 1/2 of this recipe for dinner, to serve with Ground Beef Stroganoff, Ground beef Stroganoff. The salad was fresh, tart, and tasty - and will be repeated many times before the plants give up. Thanks, RubySue.
