    I really enjoyed this. I've never loved arugula, but bought it on a whim at the farmer's market. I really liked it in this salad. I didn't have french green beans, so used regular. I tried to follow the recipe as close as possible, though, since no one else had reviewed it. I'd never roasted tomatoes - yum! This recipe was outside of the box for me, and I loved it!  -  27 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This salad is fantastic. I made it for our supper club last night and apparently I should have made more because there wasn't an ounce left over! I had to put roasted sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts because I couldn't find them anywhere. The dressing is delicious and all the flavors together are divine!  -  14 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I took a twist on this one by grilling my green beans and tomatoes slow and low. It turned out great!  -  10 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
