Simple things are always the best things, and this recipe was very good. The flavors and textures are a classic mix. The dressing simple, but complimentary to the salad ingredients. I wouldn't make this in the winter as the tomatoes have no taste, but farmer's market tomatoes in the summer can't be beat. Excellent recipe, Evelyn, thanks for sharing the recipe.

I think some cubes of mozzarella would be great with this salad.

Simply delicious. The tanginess of the vinegar contrasts so well with the sweetness of the tomatoes.
