Heirloom Tomato Salad with Rosemary

Recipe by  

"During the summertime, farmers markets have a great selection of heirloom tomatoes for a reasonable price. This is great as a cold salad, or for a different twist, grill straight on the BBQ for a warm but fresh side dish."

You had me at "tomato" and "rosemary". I made this as written and will make often as it is easy to prepare. I may cut back on the oil next time to make it lower still in fat than it already is. Thank you for this!

We had this tonight with a grilled pork tenderloin. As I didn't have any heirloom tomatoes I made it with red and yellow tomatoes on the vine which I had on hand. When I made the dressing I feared it might be to oily. But to my surprise it wasn't. We usually use onions in a tomato salad. So I was wandering what's comingout without onions. The result was great. It's a great salad on a hot day together with some grilled meat.

This one gets the gold star award and that’s a hard rating to come by. It means my husband has been "WOWED!” He can eat the entire bowl like it was candy and then ask for more. I’m surprised because he doesn’t like rosemary, yet it seems to compliment this dish very well. I used the following Heirloom varieties: Cherokee Purple, Amana Orange, and Tigerella. Thank You aimeej.B for sharing such a wonderful recipe!

Easy & very good. I tried adding a little balsamic & it was really good also.

This is wonderful! I used a 1:1 ratio of oil to vinegar to cut down the amount of fat and adjust for the amount of tomatoes I used. I also omitted the oregano because we do not care for it. Will make this beautifully colored salad again!

quite easy and tasty. A good side to sandwiches.

Deeeelicious!! Did everything as written, however, because we are such Rosemary "freaks" added another two sprigs. They were the first bowl cleared at the dinner table! Thank you for a simple, lovely recipe! Look forward to trying them on the grill!

Absolutely delicious! Served cold and topped with crumbled feta cheese. Loved it so much, I made it again the next day. Can't wait to have it for lunch with cottage cheese!
