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.
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.
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.
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.
