This is a great slad for those home growm little beauties! So easy, and is especially lovely when different colour cherry tomatoes are used.

Tis, this is a stunning recipe!!!! It is so easy to make with very few ingredients, but the end result tastes like something youd get in a high-end restaurant! Very, very yummy!
I used organic orange date tomatoes which were so good in this. As per Pat's suggestion I used balsamic vinegar reducing the amount a tad as Im not that much of a vinegar fan. It tasted so good!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this definite keeper with us! Cant wait to make it again.

A nice little side to our lunch. Made as written using very sweet white onion and home grown tear drop tomatoes. Was a little concerned about the amount of vinegar as I am not a vinegar person but the sweet onion and the sweet tomato off set the vinegar very nicely. Thanks for the post.

We enjoyed this and must admit I am trying to acquire a taste of vinegar based dishes (especially with salads due to dietary changes) and this was pretty good - I scaled it back to a 1 serve size which was plenty for the DS and I as a side for tonight meal, I think I would prefer to try this with balsamic vinegar though. The cherry tomatoes I used were superb given to me by a girlfriend and were homegrown and vine picked and with the fresh sweet basil from the garden was a good taste to help me with a journey towards the more tartiness of the vinegar. Thank you Tisme, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 11.
