Tasty tomato salad with added spice. I'm not sure where I got this recipe from.

I too had extra dressing--but so delicious! Iused fresh picked tomatoes which were so sweet that they really contrasted beautifully with the dressing. I have now also used the extra dressing on fresh string beans--a second great salad from this lovely and unusual recipe. Thanks, Jewelies!

What a fantastically flavored salad! I did cut the dressing ingredients in half, and the tomatoes were perfectly flavored. Very nice served with Black Bean Soup. Made for ZWTIII

This was a very tasty salad. A little strong for our tastes but full of wonderful flavour. I think next time I'll cut the dressing ingrediants in half to keep the flavour but not be overwhelmed with it. I used regular mustard seeds because I couldn't find black ones up here. Also used roma tomatoes for their firmness and did not include the sugar. We'll definitely have this again.
