2005: When tomatoes are at their summer peak, there's simply no going wrong! Tonight's vegetable is a gimme, just chopped tomato stirred with basil from the garden and leftover dressing from Day 126 plus a splash of rice vinegar. Would I make it again? You bet. It was delicious.

2007 & 2014: And so I do, again and again. Turns out, this is a favorite way to enjoy fresh summer tomatoes from the garden or the farmers market.

  1. I'm assuming you mix all except tomatoes together, then pour over sliced or diced tomatoes??

  2. Anonymous ~ Ah yes, that’s it, exactly. This is a much-older recipe on A Veggie Venture, I sure missed the boat on getting it perfect. Thanks for the note, I’ll get it fixed. I’ve been meaning to re-shoot the salad anyway with the last of the summer tomatoes.
