This was very tasty but very HOT! I loved everything about it but next time I think I'll try jalapeno or less of the serrano. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Africa.

This was very tasty and a nice use of garden tomatoes and a mild onion. I actually sliced everything, layered it into a plastic container with lid, added the dressing ingredients, and gently shook it, and then set it in to chill in the fridge. At serving time I arranged in layers over torn romaine. This has a nice bit of heat, a zing from the lemon, and I enjoy garlic & cilantro in all forms so this hit the spot. I served with baked chicken made with Recipe #310164, a simple baked potato, and Recipe #309938. Made for ZWT4.
