Herbed Tomato Salad

My children love to pick the garden-fresh tomatoes and herbs from our backyard garden for this salad. They are so proud of themselves when they put this tasty salad together and serve it to their family.—Judith McGhan, Perry Hall, Maryland

    Good recipe for my bumper crop of cherry tomatoes. I only made a half of recipe and it was plenty for 6 of us.

    We LOVED this recipe! I used several varieties of heirloom tomatoes, garlic chives, and English thyme that I'd just picked. The tomatoes were a mix of larger varieties as well as cherry. Cut into pieces, they worked well.

    This was good but if your not into the spices you won`t like this. The spice over powered the tomatos. Cut back on the chives and the parsley.

    This is great all summer when I have cherry tomatoes. Easy to fix ahead of time.
