Easy Garden Tomatoes

Simple as it is, this tomato recipe is one my favorite dishes, and my family loves it. I made three batches the first time, and a few stray olive slices were the only thing left on the platter. —Heather Ahrens, Columbus, Ohio

    I made this dish to take to a family gathering ~ it was a big hit. I'm going to make some of the dressing and keep it on the side and make small batches to take in my lunch.

    chilling tomatoes removes most of their flavour!

    I have made this dish for years - it was calledI've made this recipe for years. My recipe is called "Greek Style Tomatoes" and it has always been a favorite with family and company!!! The only additions I have is a tsp of parsley, l/2 tsp sugar and salt and cracked pepper to taste. Refrigerate two hours to let flavors blend together.

    The flavor combination of tomato, onion, feta and ripe olives is great (and it looked so appealing on the plate). The dressing was just too strong and dominated the salad.
