- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dill weed
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- In a large bowl, toss together the diced tomatoes, cucimbers, onion and chopped basil; set aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk together oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, dill weed and sugar.
- Pour the dressing over veggie mixture and gently toss to coat.
- Chill before serving.
As lvs2cook said, I could eat the whole bowl by myself. I make one similiar to this but your's is much better than the one I make. This is by all means a keeper.
Oh my ~ I could eat the whole bowl myself, LOL! My cherry tomatoes went berserk and I have scads of them so after picking today, I decided to make this recipe with them. I halved them (about 1 pint) and added them with my basil from my herb garden and a cuke from the farmer's market. I left out the onion just because of personal preference. I made the dressing as posted and when I snuck a taste before putting it in the fridge, I wanted to eat the whole salad right then and there! This is going to be made often every year ~ thanks so much for posting!!!
