    Big thumbs up from my tomato-loving husband. Makes such a pretty presentation.

    The taste of summer. Best thing ever when summer tomatoes are available. Wouldn't waste my time or the ingredients if you can't find good vine ripened tomatoes.

    Wonderful light salad that goes very well with souvlaki and tziki.
