That tiny little bit of dijon tang makes this a wonderful salad. I cut the recipe in half easily, and used cherry tomatoes because that's just what I had, so I'm not sure if my proportions were accurate - but I love good tomatoes so tried to use an even amount of tomato and limas. Maybe my sage is a little old, but I didn't find it overwhelming either. In fact, I was tempted to add a tinch more. But I started eating this fresh salad and felt it didn't need anything else. It's just right! Thanks for another winner, EdsGirlAngie!

This disappeared quickly at dinner tonight. With fresh garden vegetables it's irresistible. I used edamame rather than limas.I didn't find the sage overwhelming and added some salt.
