    So my mom has this Italian friend who made tomato salad when I was younger. When I was a teenager she taught me to make it. It’s diced fresh tomatoes (dice them over the bowl if possible to retain as much juice etc.), diced green peppers, diced onion, a tablespoon or two of olive oil and salt – to your tastes. You let it sit for at least 15-20 minutes. The salt draws a lot of the liquids out, and it’s fabulous you sop up the juices with some good bread. I eat it all summer long.

  6. Love your bowl! 😀

    I am most definitely saving this and bringing it to the grocery store with me! I absolutely love anything caprese-like.

    The only thing that would make that salad yummier is the warm pumpernickel croutons from Ruby Tuesday’s instead of the French/sourdough. Oh yeah, make mine red wine.

    Yum, DH and I have been eating caprese salad all summer – in fact, I’m making it tonight! I’ve been whipping up a balsamic/olive oil/dijon mustard dressing that is to DIE for!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Bisbee,

      Girlfriend, I never thought to add the dijon up into the balsamic/olive oil mix. That sounds so yum. Do you add any other spices/herbs?

  11. Abby says:

    oh my gosh I am drooling, that looks so tasty and will be my dinner tonight. Thanks for the inspiration!!
