"This is a super-easy, great tasting salad that can be served hot or cold. The balsamic vinegar and feta add great flavor. You can also add chopped chicken breasts to make it a complete meal."

I liked an easy recipe using my garden's fresh basil. We liked it warm or cold but warm is my preference

Awesome! I've made this without the balsamic before. The Balsamic adds a great flavor to this. I absolutely love this!
