Simple flavors that combine into something delicious! Enjoyed very much with early tomatoes from the garden.

I really thought this was great. It tastes a lot less sour than it looks. Don't be afraid to try this. Two thumbs up! I had to substitute Italian seasoning for one of the ingredients ( I forget which). I had dried Parsley, though. This is a healthy keeper.

Yum, yum, yum! I loved this dish mostly for it's taste, but how easy. The dressing is a winner and I would say that the fresh basil is a must! I followed it to a tee, but used cilantro because I realized that what I thought was parsley was really cilantro in my fridge. It worked out great! A do-over for sure. Thank you Gerry for a winner! Made it for Billboard Tag.
