This is the exact recipe for Sweet Tomatoes/Soup Plantation's Salad. I go there as often as possible for this salad. Finally learned how to make it myself. Word to the wise, DO NOT TASTE IT BEFORE THE 8 HOURS OR IT WON'T TASTE RIGHT. Trust me, its worth the wait!

    Thanks for posting this! Love tuna tarragon! Do I need to drain the tuna or does the water go into the dressing mix?

    I grew up going to souplantation, it was my absolute favorite restaurant/buffet to go to. The Tuna Tarragon was my favorite dish of all time and unfornately when sweet tomatoes had to close down I was heart broken. This recipe tastes exactly like our beloved tuna tarragon from souplantation, it truly brought back memories of my childhood. The serving size of this recipe is perfect for family gatherings of 10-15 people.
