Recipe from "Everyday Italian". I made this recipe with only cherry tomatoes and just tossed everything together with the dressing. Easy and good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk the lemon juice, 1/2 t salt, and 1/4 t pepper in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil to blend. Set the dressing aside.
  2. Cut the regular tomatoes into 1/2-inch thick slices, and the plum tomatoes into wedges. Cut the cherry, grape, and teardrop tomatoes in half. Arrange the tomatoes on a platter. Drizzle the dressing over. Sprinkle with the basil and additional salt and pepper to taste, and serve.

This is a fresh and tasty salad. I have to say I prefer balsamic vinegar in this type of salade to the lemon juice but it's a nice alternative. Made for PAC 2013 Spring Safari

Perfectly herby, cheesy, wonderfully tomato-ey Caprese Salad!
