Wonderful salad with all the garden tomatoes people are sharing with me. Also threw in some mozzarella cheese for the heck of it. Thanks for the tasty salad Paula! Try it people and you won't be disappointed.

Excellent and very colorful. I used Italian dressing, but next time I will use the garlic-infused oil. This was wonderful and so simple! Thanks for sharing.

I thought this salad was GREAT!! I had made a fresh tomato and sweet onion salad for years now, but I really enjoyed the additions of the basil, garlic oil and feta cheese - Thanks, PaulaG, for making my old salad taste new and exciting again!

This is a perfect summer salad. I have made always made it with just the tomatoes, onions and basil but I love the addition of the garlic infused oil with the red wine vinegar. The feta really takes it to the next level (I use goat's milk feta instead of chevre due to personal preference). This is a great way to showcase beautiful homegrown tomatoes. Thanks for posting Paula.

YUMMY! This was great with yellow hierloom tomatoes. I used garlic flavored dipping oil from the store and forgot the goat cheese, but it was really great without it. This will be my favorite late summer salad.

It is such a shame that this recipe has not been made and reviewed more frequently, as it has to be one of the simplest and yet most delicious tomato salad recipes I have tried! Not too many ingredients, and just the right ingredients too. I left my basil leaves whole for appearance, and used my own oil - Flavoured Aromatic Herb and Fruit Oil, to which I had added garlic and shallots. The goat's cheese was a lovely addition and gave the salad a salty tang - and we all love onions with tomatoes anyway. We ate this salad with a simple mushroom omelette on the terrace for lunch - nothing could have been nicer! Thanks Paula for yet another wonderful recipe! FT:-)
