Yummy on the tummy. Made these last night and packed in my lunch today and boy what a tasty treat. Wonderful smells and flavors when I opened the container. Made as written. Will be making again real soon. Thanks so much for the post.
What a great way to eat tomatoes fresh from the garden! I halved the recipe and so enjoyed the deep flavors! A make again recipe for sure! Thanks Rita. Made for the Vegetarian Swap-Sept. 2009.
This was a great tangy dressing with my home grown tomatoes. I cut them in 1/8th and it made a nice side salad to go with our falafel and pita. We even tried the two together. Very nice change from tomatoes on salads! Thanks.
