I added Feta instead of tofu and loved it! I can't wait for my garden to get going and use this all summer! Great recipe to take for family picnics!

Was OK. I think the advice about letting the salad marinate is good.

Wonderful, easy recipe! (Note that I left off the tofu.) Thanks so much for the recipe!

Fresh and different! My husband loves this! I didn't have kidney beans so I drained the ranch style beans that I had in the pantry and used them. I ate mine over a bowl of romaine and made it a healthy lowfat meal while my family had sloppy joes with this as a side!!

Great, simple and very filling alternative to a standard salad. I used plain balsamic vinegar as opposed to the vinaigrette and still thought it was great. The tastes are very complementary.

Excellent! Skipped the tofu because I don't like it, and added 1 tsp. minced garlic. Delicious!

Excellent! We left out the tofu and beans. Used dried basil. Thanks for the post.
