This is the top of the list for delightfully summer-y recipes. Nothing spells G-L-O-R-Y of the glorious tomato as much as this easy to follow, everything on hand taste sensation recipe. I love the use of two separate vinegars here. Grabbed some wonderfully fresh basil from the side porch garden, let is sit as time stated, and then off to shower the tomatoes, with the dressing and shallots. Oh so tasty. I couldn't wait for the whole time allotted. Great salad, mydesgirl. Perfect!
