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!

This is soo good! A friend of mine on Weight Watchers gave me this recipe and I was hooked. The version she gave me called for plum tomatoes which made prep. time longer but it was worth it!! During tomato season, I'm sure any kind would taste excellent

Delicious and easy-to-make tomatoes which went perfectly with grilled fish. I skipped the shallots (out of) but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!
