This is great to use as your salad dressing, or as a salad topping with additional dressing. You can also serve this as a side dish, especially when tomatoes are plentiful in the summer months! If you prepare this during a "dry tomato season", plum tomatoes are a good substitute. This recipe came from Southern Living. Please note: Cooking time is marinating time!

Simply delicious! Tonight we had these with fried rice and chicken. Tomorrow I'll have what's left as a tomato sandwich. The flavour is reminiscent of bruschetta topping. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.

Delicious! What a great way to use up the last of my garden tomatoes. I used basil infused olive oil, extra fresh basil, and red onions. We enjoyed this as a side dish with grilled steaks. This will definitely be my go to recipe when my garden has an overabundance of tomatoes. Thank you for sharing, breezermom! **Made for 2014 Football Pool**

Refreshing delicious salad which works well as a side dish or on it's own. I added extra parsley and also added kalamata olives which worked very well. Will be enjoying this one for lunch tomorrow also. Thank you breezermom for a winner. Tagged it for Everyday is a Holiday.
