"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."
