Summer Tomato Salad

Rated as 4.38 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is great ending to a hot summer day. It is a family recipe passed down to me from my great grandmother. My grandmother and I used to sit outside with candles all around us with this salad and warm conversation. The original recipe was first used in 1912."

Loved it! I also added lime juice and cucumbers which I thought complemented the recipe very well.
