  • 2 tbsp cooking wine

  • Spoon the dressing over the tomatoes or tip the bowl over to drizzle the vinaigrette over the sliced tomatoes. Then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or more before serving.


Can you add cucumbers to this tomato salad?  Yes. This recipe is PERFECT with cucumbers added. Best to use cucumbers that don't have a lot of seeds. 
What kind of herbs to add to this recipe?  Any. Feel free to add any herbs you’d like to this recipe. I have made this recipe using the herbs I have on hand. Sometimes I would add basil, rosemary, parsley, dill, to name a few. Be mindful that some herbs like rosemary, basil, dill, and sage have more of a robust flavor. I would suggest tasting the dressing prior to pouring it over the tomatoes. 
Can you use cherry tomatoes to make this recipe? ABSOLUTELY! This recipe works well with all kinds of tomatoes. I even made with the gourmet medley tomatoes.
