The simplest things are so often the best. This recipe is a must-try for anyone growing their own tomatoes! Perfect.

I left off the salt and since I was out of oil just used some water to dilute the balsamic vinegar. The tomatoes were dark red, garden fresh and I used fresh white onions. Wonderful, refreshing and cool for a light dinner which is going to be ham and cheese sandwiches on 12 grain bread and a sorbet for dessert. Perfect..

A wonderful way to serve fresh tomatoes and so easy. Followed the directions using red wine vinegar. Will have to give this a try later with balsamic vinegar. Thanks for posting and get well soon.

Derf, this is simply wonderful. Of course, as you say, fresh tomatoes are a must! I made this as directed, except that I wanted the red onions marinated too, so I put them on the tomatoes and then added the seasonings and oil. When read to serve, I added the fresh mint. Lovely! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
