    Good. But way,way to much Oil as the other reviews state. Use 1/4 cup. Red Onions would be a nice addition.

    Definately to much oil. Red onions, artichoke hearts, green beans would be nice additions. If you don't keep the dressing mix on hand add your own salt and basil. Tomatoes and basil love each other. Iuse a better quality olive oil also.

    A nice refreshing salad to go with our winter comfort foods. I took the advice of another reviewer and added some sliced onion and artichoke hearts just because I had them on hand. Good the next day also.

    This salad is one my family absolutely loves. They do tend to add different vegetables though, to make things more interesting. Sometimes it gets made as is but other vegetables work just as well. It's a keeper, for sure.

    I make this type of salad all the time. But I add red onion and avocado or artichoke hearts. Simply delish!!!

    When you make this cut the oil WAY down. It's not necessary. This isn't healthy at 211 cal & 18g of fat, I don't care if it is EVOO. Too much of any good thing is not healthy. It's a salad. Full fat ressings are ALWAYS the culprit.
