This recipe is from my friend's Gramma. It is the best way to eat fresh tomatoes in the summer, hands down! It is recommended that you make it ahead of time and let it sit overnight, but I've done it just a couple of hours before hand and it still was great. If you want to make it even tastier and more impressive add fresh mozzarella balls.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Except for tomatoes, mix ingredients. Let sit overnight. Two hours prior to serving slice and add tomatoes.

This was a very nice tomato salad with lots of fresh flavor. For my taste, though, this amount of oil diluted the dressing too much. Next time, I would probably start with half as much and adjust from there. Since garden tomatoes are out of season, I used grape tomatoes, which worked well. Since they weren't perfectly sweet, I added a pinch of sugar. This dressing would also be nice over a green salad or pasta salad. The marinated tomatoes would also make a nice topping for bruschetta. Thanks for sharing your grandmother's recipe! I'm sure I'll be making it often when summer tomatoes are abundant. Made for Bargain Basement Tag Game.
