Tomato wedges give this salad a juicy bite. It's a great use of fresh herbs and veggies from your own garden or the farmers market. —Matthew Hass, Sussex, Wisconsin

"This is very good and perfect if you have some of the ingredients in your garden. I didn't have heirloom tomatoes, so used our Ace tomatoes from the vine and our garden zucchini. Bought some yellow bell peppers and used basil and Italian parsley from garden. Very large recipe so I halved it for my husband and myself. Very pretty and tasty!! Thank you, taste of home."

"Although simple to make, this salad is full of flavor. It would be perfect for a summer potluck or picnic. Next time, I will make this salad with homegrown tomatoes. I think fresh veggies would nicely complement the fresh herbs in this dish."

"This easy recipe is perfect for a summer salad. Next time I might throw in a bit of garlic (because I LOVE garlic!), but the flavor was delicious as made exactly according to the recipe. Fresh herbs are essential."
