Another magazine find. The lemon rind and juice get utilized in this salad. I love the lemon oil fragrance in the lemon skin! I had it as a side dish with shrimp scampi and it went well. Nice with sea salt.

I did not have any cherry tomatoes so I used large ones. This is such a flavourful salad and is ready in no time. Thanks for the recipe.

I needed a simple dish so I chose this recipe as I love Coriander (Cilantro), Tomatoes and Lemon. I didn't have cherry tomatoes so I used 4 large tomatoes, I also used less then half the olive oil. The taste was superb, perfect for summer nights as it was revitalizing. Thank you for your post Oolala.
