So simple but so very, very good! I have wanted to make these for some time but held out until my garden tomatoes were ready. I am gla I did. An excellent treatment for fresh tomatoes!

We used fresh tomatoes that our neighbor had given us from her garden. This is a great side dish for something nice and different, and very easy to put together.

This is a great side dish, especially if you love tomatoes! I can't wait to try this with my garden-fresh tomatoes! I did add some sweet onions to this, but that's it! Thanks for sharing.
