    Quick, easy and fabulous! Great ratio of vinegar, oil and seasoning. With or without fresh basil very tasty. Have also used fresh cilantro! As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that bring out the best flavors of the season!

    My husband loved this. The second time I made this I added some freshly shaved parmesan cheese and served it on top of grilled bread slices like a bruschetta. Seriously delicious.

    Great for a light, fresh side dish. This is a keeper! I'm sure it would be good with cucumbers added too.
