My mother-in-law gave me this recipe, and I've used it often. It's a nice change of pace from your basic lettuce and tomato salad.


  • 12 thick tomato slices
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 6 large lettuce leaves
  • Minced green onions
  • Minced fresh parsley


  1. Arrange tomato slices in an 8-in. square dish; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and mustard. Pour over tomatoes. Cover and chill for 1-2 hours.
  2. To serve, place each lettuce leaf on an individual plate and top with two tomato slices. Drizzle with dressing. Sprinkle with onions and parsley.
