This is a delicious tomato salad. I used garlic salt instead of plain old salt, maybe half the oregano and added quite a bit of freshly snipped basil. I also just added amounts of oil and vinegar to suit my tastes. Let sit for more like 15 min. before eating. I could see myself adding shredded or cubed mozzarella cheese to this, and I will use fresh oregano next time. Yum.

Good quick snack with a little more zing that plain tomatoes. Fresh oregano or basil (in place of the oregano) makes it taste even more fresh.

I doubled the recipe for two of us, but it was almost too much. Used grape tomatoes, a high quality balsamic vinegar, skipped the oregano, added lots of fresh-snipped basil, halved the salt, and added a bit of mild feta. Nice texture with the grape tomatoes; anymore salt would have been too much; feta combined well with other flavors.

Very, very good and so easy! I usually use a lot more than 10 tomatoes, and I like to sprinkle parmesan cheese over mine right before I serve them. These make a great lunch by themselves or along with any meat. Thanks for sharing.

I've made this recipe several times. The key is to use a really good quality balsamic vinegar. Also, I usually use basil. The longer you let the tomatoes sit in the vinegar, the better they taste.

A great side dish with some feta and thinly sliced red onions - and still South Beach friendly!

I really liked this recipe it had a wonderful taste - didn't give it the 5 stars because the oregano is way too much. I should have read the reviews before trying it and it would have been much better. Still a great recipe though!

Very good, but the recipe calls for too much oregano. I recommend using half the amount
