My dad grows incredibly delicious tomatoes and red peppers. This year's crop was especially abundant, so I created this salad combination to take advantage of the bounty. My husband gave this recipe a definite "thumbs up".
My mother-in-law made this salad for a shower she was hosting and shared the recipe with me. I've made it many times, and now I get asked for the recipe. Cooking has always been an enjoyable part of my life. Ever since I can remember, I loved to watch or help my mother in the kitchen. These days, my 3-year-old son likes to help me. Hopefully he'll grow up to enjoy cooking as much as I do.
In our house, this light and tasty salad is a real summer favorite! I usually serve it with sliced tomatoes and bread and butter. It can also be used to make wonderful chicken salad sandwiches - perfect in hot weather.
My family loves this dish. Use light mayonnaise and this is a healthy salad. Even if you or your family are not garlic lovers, I'd advise that you use the full measurement of garlic and the tablespoon of oregano for the proper flavoring. I receive nothing but raves when I serve this salad.
This is my favortie luncheon salad for summertime. It's cool, colorful and always brings compliments to the chef. I like to serve it with a crusty loaf of French bread and tall glasses of iced tea—very refreshing!
