  1. I too had extra dressing--but so delicious! Iused fresh picked tomatoes which were so sweet that they really contrasted beautifully with the dressing. I have now also used the extra dressing on fresh string beans--a second great salad from this lovely and unusual recipe. Thanks, Jewelies!
  2. What a fantastically flavored salad! I did cut the dressing ingredients in half, and the tomatoes were perfectly flavored. Very nice served with Black Bean Soup. Made for ZWTIII
  3. This was a very tasty salad. A little strong for our tastes but full of wonderful flavour. I think next time I'll cut the dressing ingrediants in half to keep the flavour but not be overwhelmed with it. I used regular mustard seeds because I couldn't find black ones up here. Also used roma tomatoes for their firmness and did not include the sugar. We'll definitely have this again.
  4. This salad had wonderful aroma and strong flavour. I think I made a mistake somewhere with the spice mixture as it was more like a paste then a runny liquid. So did step five then poured vinegars into the spice mixture, mixed them together then add it over the tomatoes. Overall the flavour really is strong and I love tomatoes so it was a new way eating them. Thank you for your post Jewelies.
