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.
