"Because this salad is so simple, fresh, top quality ingredients are important. Please use home grown tomatoes. If you are not growing your own, go to a local farmers market. Heirloom tomatoes are more expensive, but definitely worthwhile. Please note: this is an adopted recipe and I hope to make it soonest. If you make it before I do, I would appreciate feedback, Thanks ! ZWT REGION: Italy."

"You did very good when you adopted this recipe. It is so simple and oh so delicious. I used fresh garden tomatoes, 1 red and 1 yellow along with fresh garden basil. The recipe reduces easily to feed 2 and with my tomatoes beginning to really ripen, I can see myself making this frequently during the summer. Made for *ZWT4*"
"This was great! I used fresh basil from my garden and halved boccochini mozzarella balls and boy, was this ever yummy. Made exactly as directed it was also a very pretty addition to our BBQ yesterday! Not only beautiful and tasty, but also very simple to make. Made for ZWT4."
"Easy, fresh ingredients. How could you go wrong? I picked my heirloom yellow tomatoes (they are supposed to have a less acidic taste), fresh basil and cucumber from my garden and used a marinated mozzarella cheese. Drizzled with a little olive oil and sprinkled some kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Yummy! Made for ZWT4."
"We don't have heirloom tomatoes here in Greece, but we do have lovely tomatoes this time of year brought up from Crete - so this was a celebration of wonderful tastes. But fresh, milky mozzarella this morning and we all dug into this and loved it."
"Finally found a source for the heirloom tomatoes and all I can say is WOW! You forget how much flavor these old varieties can really hold. I have never had this salad with the cucumbers and it makes for a very nice change. Thanks Kiwi for the great photo in the Summer '07 Camera Less Chef game. I'm very pleased to add this salad into our summer roatation."
