What a lovely appetizer. Nothing beats Fresh. Especially when fresh local tomatoes come into season. I used my own home grown Grape Tomatoes and for just the 2 of us I down sized the recipe. Love the addition of the cucumber. It just brings the onion, garlic and vinegar together. I let mine sit at room temperature, covered for a few hours. That always seems to quicken up the melding process. It is a Winner. This would be an excellent addition to a cold Spaghetti or Pasta Salad. VFE VFE *

It's an easy good dinner. It makes other's jealous easily.

I have been making this salad since I first got the recipe in 1993. It is a favorite with my husband especially. I have made it many times.
