I've been making this for years. I'll make a huge salad and just have that for dinner. Great in the summertime when tomatoes are fresh. Measurements are a guess so you may have to adjust. Lately, I've replaced green leaf lettuce with fresh spinach and then added pine nuts which makes a really nice change to this salad. I like my tomatoes at room temperature since it seems to make them more juicy. Make sure to mix around the first 10 ingredients and then add the lettuce or spinach. I hope you enjoy this salad as much as I do. Would love feedback.

Totally agree with your methos of putting the salad together,Zenmaria. Can't think of a thing this salad is missing. Has to be summer fresh.
