This was pretty good. Light and basil-y. I did make the substitution of using dried oregano when I couldn’t find fresh.

I like making this during the summer when my cherry tomato plants are overloaded and basil plants are overgrown. If I don't have any fresh herbs, dried work out ok as well.

I haven't tried this yet but I've made a similar salad for years using regular tomatoes chopped in quarter pieces with the dried spices as well. I also add some minced garlic and I think it must have sliced onions!

This was a delicious dish. The taste is good and tangy. I used dried herbs and it still was great. I sprinkled it with grated Parmesan cheese and topped with seasoned croutons.
