    Jacqueline in KY's Note:

    My sister and I had eaten something similar to this when eating out, but we could not find a recipe like we liked, and there may be one here on Zaar, but I am sure back when we did this we didn't know about this site. So we made this up ourselves.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tomato, firm and cubed

    • crushed hot pepper, to taste (optional)


    1. 1
      Cube Tomatoe and Dice Onion.
    2. 2
      Add spices, to taste, I normally add about 1 teaspoons of basil, salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Pour Italian Dressing over all.
    4. 4
    5. 5
      Let set either in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or over night, if desire.
    6. 6

      Cooking time is setting time.
    8. 8
      Note added: 6/24/06 I recently made this using fresh chives and think it was even better than with basil. I also think that about any spice of your liking would be good in this recipe.

      Yummmm! Saw the picture posted and knew that I had to try it. Didn't change a thing except to use green onions, and to use cucumbers. Thanks for sharing!
