This was great for a hot-didn't want to cook-day. The dressing is very light. I used basil but will try the mint soon. I halved the recipe for 2 of us.

Delicious! I made this using tomatoes out of my garden...quick and easy...the hubby really loves tomatoes and he made me swear...that I would make these again...all the ingredients worked well together...made for "Bill Board" tag game...


Review by TeresaS

So easy and so good! I was able to use herbs I grew - using basil and parsley. We skipped the wine but otherwise made as directed. Great addition to dinner and I am sure we will be making these again this summer! Thanks for sharing!

I doubled the recipe and brought 2 platters down to BINGO... I didn't use the wine. When I left I had 2 tiny pieces left to have for lunch today. I guess you know they were totally enjoyed by all my neighbors. I loved the vinaigrette and so did everyone else. Perfect with the other ingredients. Thanks so much for sharing it with us Patti!

Cut this back for a light lunch using snipped in fresh basil and garnishing with fresh parsley for a great tasting tomato platter. Looking forward to making this with both red and yellow tomatoes fresh from the garden. Living in Saskatchewan that won't be happening anytime soon! Another Luv winner I look forward to serving to family and friends.

This is a wonderful quick and tasty tomato salad. I only had two tiny top basil leaves so i kept them to garnish the platter and used dried basil in the vinaigrette. A beautiful side to brighten up any table!!
