"Delicious and inexpensive, this is a breeze to whip up. You will love this sunny salad packed with seasonal tomatoes, basil, and garlic. An awesome take-along salad for work with some whole-grain pita wedges or a whole-grain bun, or a nice side for grilled chicken, pork, or fish! I heat the salad dressing (before adding the chopped garlic) in the microwave 30 seconds to ensure the honey incorporates."

This was a quick and easy side to make for husbands lunch for work and during the summer. I did add more of the tomatoes but other than that I found it to be fine as is.

I doubled quantity of dressing and have to say.. absolutely yummy!!!

I make this all the time in warm weather and my husband and I love it! You don't even need the feta for it to be delicious. And we only use 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Anyone who likes bean sa...

The only changes I made to this recipe was that I added a cup of couscous and since I didn't have red wine vinegar I added a 1/4c of rice vinegar and 1/4c of red wine. The end result was amazing...

It was delicious! My husband suggested using mint in place of the basil every now and then.
