You won't miss the salt in this refreshing tomato salad! It's well-seasoned with cayenne pepper, mustard seed and vinegar but not the least bit spicy. This dish is always a hit at potlucks. —Nan Rickey, Yuma, Arizona

"This is a delightful recipe! The cayenne gives just an extra little spark (but can easily be left out if you have someone-like my dad-who absolutely can't eat pepper). Great to keep on hand when your garden is going crazy!"

"It was very good and easy to prepare too. I'll probably make it again but with some slight modifications as my husband said it "needed something.""
