I made this recipe for a potluck at work and it was a hit. A few things I tweeked with this recipe: I made the vinaigrette the night before using a hand blender to really get things combined. I used a combination of white wine vinegar and balsamic vinegar. I used Splenda instead of sugar (1-2 packets). I also added 1 t. of grated parmesan cheese to the vinaigrette. The next day I roasted 3 oz. of pine nuts. I combined the tomatoes and vinaigrette about 2 hours before serving letting it sit out at room temperature. Just before serving I added the roasted pine nuts and some shredded parmesan cheese. It looked really pretty in a white casserole dish. I m making it again tonight for my family and guests. It s a great way to enjoy (and use up!) those cherry tomatoes fresh from the garden. Read More

Sorry but this just didn't really do it for me. I've had much better marinated tomatoes. And if I tweaked it to the degree many people did I'd say they just changed it into one of those better recipes I've made. Read More

This is a delicious recipe. I have made it many times and served it to many people and they all wanted the recipe. I would not change one ingredient from the original recipe. Dianne Downing Read More

I used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil and brown sugar instead of white sugar. Pretty good. The longer it sits the better it is. This would make a great bruschetta. Next time I might try this with balsamic instead of cider vinegar--I think I might like that a little better. Read More

Even though my husband has a slight allergy to tomatoes, he still enjoys them from time to time. I did make a few changes to this recipe but in my opinion, it only enhanced the flavor. I only used about 1 cup of tomatoes and about 3 Tbls of olive oil rather than vegetable oil. I used balsamic vinegar instead of cider and left out the sugar. Finally, right before I served this, I sprinkled some parmesan cheese over and mixed it well. This gave it an outstanding flavor and I will certainly make it again with these changes. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This is a very good tomato salad that makes a quick and easy side dish. I cut it down to two servings and added a little minced garlic to the mix along with a bit more sugar. Read More

A little too tart for the kids. Perhaps try a sweeter vinegar next time - - like balsamic? Read More

I cut recipe in half and was too vinegary tasting. Next time i will try omitting the sugar and using basalmic vinegar instead. But a great idea for a quick and easy side dish. Read More

This was pretty good - it was a great way to use up some cherry tomatoes from the garden. Next time I think I'll use olive oil and a different favored vinegar just for something different. Read More
