"I made this delectable salad today to serve at lunch to accompany a quiche. I used multi-color cherry tomatoes. I made the dressing with chives and tarragon because I didn't have fresh basil. The dressing is light and very flavorful. The salad was so easy to make, and I will definitely will be making this again."

"Looking forward to making this again with fresh, local tomatoes. It was a nice change from a garden salad (especially for my husband) and easy to make."

"l made this as part of a light lunch today. It was easy and delicious. Save this recipe for really good tomatoes -- they are the star.

l made the full amount of dressing but 1/3 of the salad, for 2 large servings. I plan to marinate mushrooms in the leftover dressing."
