Quick and Easy Garden Tomatoes

"I found this in a taste of home magazine. The original recipe calls for 3 large tomatoes, but I use cherry tomatoes as I have them growing like crazy in my garden and need to use them up."

  1. I made this using my home grown cherry tomatoes too---a very tasty salad! I made about a half batch so I will definitely make it again when more tomatoes are ready! Thanks for posting.
  2. Fabulous! Everything just comes together so quickly and taste so great that you just would believe it. Made as written with home grown cherry tomatoes. Are cherry tomatoes were really sweet which went really well with the salty olives and the fresh feta cheese from the farmers market. Will be making this one again. Thanks so much for the post.
  3. LOVELY thanks Pinkie! I made this as posted with the exception of a sub of parsley for basil, as my basil has all gone now! I used feta cheese and a few chunks of Camembert - again, I had the Camembert to hand and they went well with all of the other ingredients. I used green olives and some specialist heirloom black cherry tomatoes as well as small plum tomatoes. The dressing was divine, there was lots of it which suits me as I can save some for more salads in the future. I used all fresh home-grown tomatoes and herbs, as well as home-grown spring onions (green onions). A tasty and simple salad that is a keeper for us! Merci darlink. FT:-)
  4. We absolutely loved this recipe, there is tons of dressing so I'm sure I used way more than 3 cups of cherry tomatoes I didn't even both to measure, the only change I made was I used a red onions and increased the garlic amount, also used lots of black pepper and some salt, this will be made again soon, thank you for sharing Pink, this was made for KK's vegetarian forum tag game
  5. Great salad! I used large tomatoes from my neighbor's garden and just cut them up. I also used fresh herbs from my wheelbarrel garden. Thanks for a great lunch! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
