As a child, this was my favorite salad in the summer. As an adult, it still is! When my Mom would send me across the yard to the garden to pick some basil, I knew this salad was coming soon. This is how I learned to like tomatoes. I would dip fresh Italian bread in the “juice.” When I made it for one of my sons and he did the same thing, there was a big smile on my face. Use fresh, ripe tomatoes for maximum flavor. Get some from the farmers market or, even better, grow your own. Serves 1 to 3.
