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 recipe is now my favorite. We eat a lot of bean salads - all of them from All Recipes. This one is so very tasty, light, and easy. I will put a bit less honey in it the next time I make it. I also used rice wine vinegar instead of red wine vinegar. I also left out the feta cheese - I don't care for cheese in my salads. Read More

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. Read More

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

We love this recipe. We often add chopped cucumber and we like to change it up by adding a bit of chopped mint sometimes. Read More

Easy healthy and cheap. Next time I'd add bell peppers or onion for a little more flavor variety. Read More

I really enjoyed this. I was looking for something quick and meatless for my "Meatless Monday" when I got home from the gym and found this recipe. I didn't have any tomatoes on hand and added some red onion but other than that pretty much exactly as shown. I didn't even wait the full hour before having it because I was starving and it was still amazing! I will definitely be making this again. Read More
