You cannot go wrong with this salad. A wonderful twist on Italian Caprese Insalata. I always make the standard but now will add this to my repertoire. Thanks for the idea!

Made this for the first time today. We had company who are health conscious people, and they loved that it was simple yet had such wonderful flavor. We as host also thought that this side was spectacular and can compliment many main dishes. I will be making this regularly, and especially now that our tomatoes have have started to ripen on the vine! Thanks for the recipe Apricot20

I made this with black olives and it was superb. Thanks for the recipe.

What really makes this recipe is the addition of olives and let it sit at room temp for the full 15 mins before consuming...Tough to do because it looks so good but it does make a difference. Thanks for sharing.

Made this salad to go with a meatloaf dinner and we both enjoyed it very much. Nice fresh taste and nice and light. I did splash it with a little balsamic vinegar because tomatoes are not in season and they were not as flavorful as fresh ripe summer tomatoes.
