"A refreshing, light salad for any hot, humid summer day! The kidney beans and tofu make it a great main dish for vegetarians, as well. The basil may be substituted with fresh parsley or mint. Be sure to make this salad just before serving."

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!

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.

This was a very good salad for a light summer meal. I didn't have tofu so I doubled the kidney beans. I served this as a main course with home baked whole wheat bread.
