Recipe from French Women Don't Get Fat. This is a really refreshing and surprisingly filling recipe which is perfect for the summer. I served it with fresh mussels in a white wine sauce and a crusty bread. Bon Apetit!

Yum, yum, yum! This was a great way to enjoy the summer garden-fresh tomatoes. I was gifted with some beautiful red as well as yellow tomatoes, so this was perfect. I made this as written, but added just a pinch of sugar to the dressing. I opted to go go with the fresh basil as my herb. I think the parsley would be great too, as well as cilantro. Thanx for sharing a new summer favorite!
