This Simple Tomato Salad Will Become Your Favourite Summer Side Dish

I love entertaining al fresco during the summer months, and my perfect menu is one that reflects the season. In late July, when tomato season hits its peak, we eat our fill. Our friend Pete is a tomato connoisseur. Whenever he and his lovely wife, Mary, come to dinner, I make sure to serve an amazing tomato dish. Pete gave this a 5/5 tomato rating as the best tomato salad he had ever had. From his lips to your ears.
