Vinaigrette: In a blender, combine the basil, vinegar, garlic,

the herbs are finely chopped. With the machine still running,

drizzle in the olive oil until the dressing is smooth.

occasionally, about 8-10 minutes. Drain pasta.

In a large bowl, toss together the cooked pasta with the remaining

salad ingredients. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Serve.
