"This salad is wonderful! It's quick and easy to make, but tastes like you fussed! I substituted 2 Tbl. of my homemade frozen pesto for the fresh basil, since my fresh basil was not big enough to pick yet. We thought the substitution worked just fine. I'm looking forward to making this salad again!"
