What a wonderful salad. You just can't beat the combination of tomatoes and olives (I used a combination of green and black olives). Yummmmm. Thanks for sharing, Syrah. This is the BEST!!!

Wonderful as it, decadent with some cubed mozzarella. We have even thrown in some grilled shrimp and used as our summer spaghetti suce.

Easy to make and easier to eat! I enjoyed the tomato and olive flavor and did add a little balsamic vinegar. Thanks!

Yay, finally a use for all those @*#%&%$ cherry tomatoes in my garden. Wish I'd seen this recipe early in the summer. I wonder...would this be good for bruschetta? If you drained some of the juice off? And maybe added some mozzarella...or Parm?

Yum. Summer on a fork. You just can't overdo the basil so have lots on hand.

Really, really simple and yummy! I used about two handfuls of fresh basil. I think I liked the leftovers tossed with hot linguini even more than the original. Thanks for posting!

Can't get any easier (or better!) than this. I used green olives, only 1 T olive oil, and half fresh basil, half dried. The tomato juices mixed with all the other flavors in this were perfect... sweet basil and tomato, salty/tangy olives and vinegar... Yummm! Thanks Syrah.
