A long time staple in our family, I remember my mother making this often during the hottest days in Texas typically the month of August. I recently, however, served this along with some chili and cornbread and it was a nice compliment.

Wonderfully light and fresh-tasting. The various colors of the heirloom tomatoes brighten this nicely. I loved the fresh parsley, and I think fresh cilantro would work well, too. Thanx for sharing your family recipe!
