This was very acidic, but tasted very fresh. My husband really loved it. We heated it up as well and served with some cheese toasts.

Delicious mix of f l favors, but still the fresh fresh fresh taste of the tomatoes shines through. Great way to use the large basket of tomatoes that I just couldn't resist.

My sister made this recipe and shared it with us. It was perfect for a summer night - fresh, light and VERY tasty. I'm planning on making it this weekend with the tomatoes from our garden.
