    I thought this looked like a great way to enjoy my abundance of garden tomatoes, and it was! It's very cool and fresh-tasting. Store-bought tomatoes just wouldn't be as good for this. I made this as written, including using all the optional ingredients. That little bit of cumin and turmeric really added a special flavor. Thanx for sharing!

    Love it! I'm not a big tomato person, but have taught myself to like them in other things to be healthier :) I made these to go with Alton Brown's stove top mac and cheese. It was an excellant combination! I'd made a bit too much of the marinade (as it turned out I had less tomato left than I thought) and where it tasting a little overpowering, the mac and cheese mellowed it while it brought a little something special to the mac and cheese. <br/>Making both again tonight and the husband is quite happy.

    Outstanding!!! Have had many marinated tomatoes before, but THIS ONE IS THE BEST!!! Never would have thought this combination of ingredients could make such a great dressing. I had 2 large tomatoes for 2 of us and I almost ate them all by myself. As long as we can get good tomatoes we will be eating these. I have lots of basil in the garden and will add some of that next time. Thanks!!! :-)

    Yum! Loved the addition of cumin! I ate the entire recipe which totally spoiled my dinner but was SO worth it. Thanks for sharing the recipe!


<p>Married to my sweetheart for almost forty years and we have two wonderful children who are grown and have flown the coop. Also, we have been blessed with a wonderful son-in-law and beautiful daughter-in-law, plus FIVE grandchildren: two beautiful granddaughters ages five and eight, and three sweet adorable little grandsons ages 2 months, 2 years and 3 years. My husband and I share a combination of English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Dutch, Swiss, Polish, Austrian, German and French heritage, and our son-in-law and daughter-in-law are both Hispanic. We've traveled extensively to many countries abroad (we lived in Germany), and have traveled and lived in several states here in the U.S.A. Many of the recipes I post here are influenced by our combined heritage or from our travels, or they are old family favorites that I want to share with you. I hope you enjoy! Have been to culinary school with many years of cooking (mostly for my family) under my belt, so know my way around a kitchen. And I'm very lucky to have the best sous chef in the world, dddddh! One of my favorite chefs of all time is Jacques Pepin! I have several of his cookbooks, and enjoy watching his television cooking show Fast Food My Way. Another top favorite is Julia Child (of course!). A few other chefs I read/enjoy watching on t.v. are: Giada At Home, Ina Garten's The Barefoot Contessa, Nigella Lawson's Nigella Bites, and Patti's Mexican Kitchen, and many more. On my bucket list is dining at Thomas Keller's establishment The French Laundry in Napa Valley, California... as well as Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in Berkeley, and the James Beard award winning Tartine Bakery and Cafe in San Francisco. One day!! &nbsp; Hobbies/Interests: Decorating with fresh flowers and herbs from the garden is my passion, and brings me deep joy! It's really hard to beat!! I love connecting with others who enjoy the same. Gardening, decorating, sewing, music, dancing, film, and reading are also up there. Spending quality time with my grandchildren, family, and friends (and cooking holiday meals!). Currently, a newfound passion has been so richly rewarding for me: genealogical research. I heart ancestry dot com. And last but certainly not least, I absolutely LOVE cats--we have two half-Siamese fur babies (cats) that allow us to live here!!&nbsp; &nbsp; A Note of Thanks~ I try to personally thank everyone who kindly makes and reviews my recipes, but sometimes I am busy, late, or may forget. Please know that I am always humbled that you would try one of my recipes, and I enjoy reading the reviews and seeing all the pretty photographs. Thanks so much!&nbsp;</p>
