This was great for lunch! On another reviwers suggestion I added a bit of mint to my dressing. I did use dried oregano. I also chopped my tomatoes a little smaller. I used a sundried tomato basil feta and it was just wonderful! Great light salad that is hearty at the same time! I paired this with some grilled chicken and it was great! Made Zaar Chef's ABC tag!
I liked the flavors in this recipe. I drained away the juices from the tomatoes by coring them, salting and then allowing them sit for a few minutes over the sink in a collander -- to avoid the soupiness others mentioned. I topped with a few sliced peppercinis too, to spice it up, and next time will try it with a little cucumber.
This was a very tasty salad, and quite a departure from our normal tomato salads. Our tomatoes were very juicy too, so next time i think I would drain them a little before mixing in the dressing, because we didn't like the salad quite that wet.
This was an excellent salad! Try using mint instead of oregano as it gives a wonderful cool taste in yogurt dressings.
We really enjoyed the flavor of this dish. It turned out to be more of a soup than a salad, however. So it was eaten with a spoon. Other than scaling the recipe for a smaller yield and peeling the tomatoes, I stayed with all ingredients and directions. I did drain the yogurt longer than specified. I think it could have been that my quite ripe tomatoes were a particularly juicy variety. Nonetheless, it was delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
Wonderful salad! I used about 1/2 tsp of cumin as it's not one of my favorite spices, but it tasted so good in this salad. Also used shallots rather than scallions as that's what I had on hand. The salad disappeared quickly here as well.
