Tomato Salad

Salads of all varieties are an excellent treat in the summer months, and this Tomato Salad is one of my all time favorites! It’s so quick and simple to put together and makes such a cool and refreshing side dish for cookouts and picnics. This is the barebones base recipe and it’s fantastic as is, but if you really want to take it up a notch I suggest adding in a handful of fresh chopped basil and/or 1/4 cup shredded parmesan. Mix it up and make it your own! There are so many directions you could go and things you could add to it to personalize it to your own taste. Enjoy!

  1. This sounds yummy. I just bought some tomatoes at the store, so I’m going to try this. Perfect summer dish. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’m practically yelling at my tomatoes “GROW FASTER” after reading this post. Can’t wait until I have super ripe tomatoes fresh out of my garden to make this.
