This is a simple recipe, but it is delicious and pretty! I had yellow, orange and red tomatoes for the salad, so it looked nice and colorful when it was done. My daughter who hates tomatoes says that they were edible when served this way.

  1. I agree with you, your pic is great. There is something about those "Italian" type salads that kids like…they will eat my panzanella, but won't eat a tomatoe! Joni
