A refreshing, light salad for any hot summer day! The kidney beans and tofu make it a great vegetarian main, as well. The basil may be substituted with fresh parsley or mint. Be sure to make this salad just before serving.
This is perfect with a simple balsamic vinaigrette.
Used different ingredients. 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! - 24 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Wonderful, easy recipe! (Note that I left off the tofu.) Thanks so much for the recipe! - 24 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Excellent! Skipped the tofu because I don't like it, and added 1 tsp. minced garlic. Delicious! - 24 Jul 2008
