This is a great salad for using up the garden goodies. If you don’t have a garden, ask your neighbors to share or visit a local farmers market.

I like to use a few different colors of tomatoes because it makes the salad extra pretty, but you can use any kind of tomatoes. Tomatoes are SO good right now, you can’t go wrong!

  1. I love a simple and fresh summer salad! Perfect to prepare for those days where my dad handles the barbecue and it’s only meat meat meat meat. Oh, and I’ll always love a recipe when there’s balsamic vinegar involved… Yumm!

  2. I grow lots of tomatoes, cukes and basil in my raised bed gardens. We have 3 of them 16 feet long and 4 feet wide. Huge! But we grow enough for ourselves and most of our neighbors. So my summer staples is whatever is growing free in my garden.

  3. This salad looks amazing! There was another recipe of yours that asked for white balsamic vinegar and I have tried to find it. Any suggestions on where to look? Thanks

    1. DeLallo’s is my favorite. Most stores should carry it. Look in the vinegar section. Champagne vinegar will also work. And if you can’t find white, you can use regular balsamic, it will just give the salad a darker color.

    2. I found white balsamic vinegar and made this salad tonight. It was amazing. Thanks again!

  4. This looks delicious! I’m excited to try it! I am hosting a shower and wanting to possibly add this to the menu. I’m all about making stuff ahead to make things easier the day of! If stored in the fridge, do you think this would be okay made ahead of time? Maybe a day or 2 ahead?

  5. am always finds way of stay healthy and fresh. your salad is too colorful and healthy so thanks for this sharing and keep shared your new ideas and recipes.
