Summer in the south means eating lots of tomato salad. We didn’t grow up in the north eating tomato salad but here in the south it is a staple. In the summertime, almost everyone grows tomato plants so we make lots of salad. We enjoy this as a side with dinners or eat it instead of a normal side salad. The longer it sits in the fridge the more it marinates and the tastier it becomes.

For this particular recipe I used 4 store bought large tomatoes and a few smaller ones from my garden. The more variety of tomatoes, the better your salad will turn out. I chopped one vidalia onion. Then I loosely chopped some fresh basil also from my garden. I seasoned the salad with a pinch of salt and pepper. Then I tossed the salad with Olive Garden’s Italian dressing.

You can make so many variations of this salad per your preference. In previous dishes, I added in a red onion, cucumber and zucchini.
