The assortment of tomato colors and sizes creates a gorgeous, yet simple, salad. Juicy summer tomatoes don't need much embellishment to shine. Here, they're lightly dressed with a simple vinaigrette that doesn't mask their sweet flavor. To make this ahead, store the tomato mixture and the dressing separately, and toss together shortly before serving.
