We love this recipe and added a few flavors: avocado, blueberries, yellow and red watermelon, feta, and Trader Joes roasted & salted Rosemary Marcona almonds. It was a huge hit for our summer party and it was beautiful on the table.

My daughter made this when it appeared in the July 2007 issue of SL. It was wonderful. I have since read of addin fresh chopped basil (about 1/4 cup), a little fresh lemon juice, and 1/2 cup of crumbled Feta cheese. I thought of adding some sweet blueberries for the Fourth of July 1 I'm not sure that I would add the lemon juice. Enjoy!

If there were 10 stars, I would give them. This is OUTSTANDING and I can't get enough of it in the summer when tomatoes and watermelon are at their peak. I prefer balsamic vinegar to the red wine vinegar, but they are both delish. Also, if I have it on hand, I will add some chopped fresh basil. Again, delicious either way. Love, love, love.

I agree with the above posts. I've been making this for summer gatherings for several years and it is always a hit...especially if I don't name the ingredients :))
