Garden vegetable basil salad

Deb Crane


Everything in the garden can be added to this simple recipe. A great way to enjoy the bounties of produce! I was looking for a way to use some of my over abundant basil. The basil makes it different with so many recipes calling for parsley. A great tasting combination!
