Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad
Good, but it's "great" with a few tweaks. Like a lot of folks, I used extra virgin olive oil (use as good of an EVOO as you can afford, because a good quality EVOO really brings out the lovely summer flavors in this salad). I also used balsamic vinegar instead of cider (I used a white balsamic vinegar). I used heirloom tomatoes, so I had yellow, orange and red, which was really pretty. I didn't use the dried herbs, but used fresh basil, and did not add any sugar because of the sweetness of the balsamic vinegar. It was outstanding!

Key Lime Pie VII
Yum! I have made this recipe probably 10 or 12 times in the last 2 summers, and everyone loves it! I always make a homemade graham cracker crust, because it's just so easy and tastes so much better than a premade one. The only thing I change is that I use 1 full cup of key lime juice (Nellie's in the bottle) and 1 full cup of sour cream. I lighten it up a little by using light/low-fat sour cream and 2% reduced fat sweetened condensed milk. (I think the fat free is really grainy, but the 2% retains a flavor and texture that is close to the full fat, especially after combined with the sour cream and lime juice.) This usually is enough for a full pie plus I make a few "tartlets" in a cupcake tin with graham crust and filling, which kids always seem to like!

Rachel's Tomato Basil Soup
Yum! I modified it to make it healthier and it was still wonderful! (I know, I know, that's a crime, but I have health problems that make it a necessity!) I used 2 cups of 2% milk, and only half the butter. I also added a small can of tomato paste, which made it have a much richer tomato flavor. I also used veggie broth because the hubby is vegetarian. Wonderful!
