This tomato salad is super! The dressing adds so much zing, with the garlic, ginger and lemon juice (I didn't use the vinegar.) Very fresh and light. I opted not to use the sugar, and just added a tablespoon or so of oil because I don't like my salad dressings very oily. I did have a little problem making a fine paste of my ginger and garlic and ended up with some bits and pieces, but it's still fine. I've been trying to eat more fresh garlic and onions, and less processed and cooked foods (enzymes and all that nutrition stuff) and this recipe is just perfect. Thanks, Evelyn.

This is so good. To make a paste of the ginger and garlic, I used a fine mesh micro-plane. Very easy and very quick. I made the recipe as written and we loved it. Thanks Evelyn for posting.
