"I prepared this recipe 9/16/13 for a recipe challenge. I made the following adjustments: I used one can of UNDRAINED Italian diced tomatoes, 1/3 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup red or white wine vinegar, (I had WHITE wine vinegar available), 1 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, one WHOLE garlic clove, minced, 1/2 red onion, finely chopped, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning and 1 tsp. dried parsley flakes. I didn't use basil! didn't have regular tomatoes on hand, so I figured that I'd substitute the Italian diced tomatoes. I used 1 quart sized casserole dish with a lid, combined the dressing ingredients, seasonings, chopped onionand minced garlic clove and used a jar with a tight-fitting lid. I shook the dressing and poured it over the tomatoes and then covered the casserole dish with a lid. I allowed the tomatoes to marinate overnight in the refrigerator and this morning, 9/17/13, I tasted it.The tomatoes came out tangy and quite tasty, too! Thank you, Myrtle Matthews, for sharing this recipe! It's quick and so easy and it's a tasty recipe to use, too! Dawn E. Lowenstein"

"This is a great recipe for tomatoes from the garden. The dressing is mild, fresh and perfectly seasoned. I used canola oil for a lighter flavor."

"Okay.... you must try this this summer with extra ripe tomatoes, dice them up, add the juices that they drip out with the rest of the dressing, then toss together with rice noodles.... alllow to chill!! If the tomatoes are a bit acidy, add a tablespoon of sugar and you can add a splash of your blood mary mix or V8 juice if too dry. Pairs very good with a steak hot off the grill!"
