Tomato Salad

Publish date:

This salad is delightfully fragrant, colorful and refreshing. If you must make it ahead of time, make it without the tomatoes (up to two days ahead), then add the tomatoes before serving. Please do not use grape or vine tomatoes, as they are too juicy and not meaty enough for this dish, and save them for other salad dishes.
