Easy, fresh, full of flavor, and the perfect use for all of that beautiful summer produce…this marinated tomato salad whips up in a quick hurry and uses simple, fresh, and easy ingredients. You’ll be making this all summer long!

Tip: this salad is a great recipe to try out a flavored balsamic vinegar!

Cherry tomatoes, roma tomatoes, or plum tomatoes work best in this salad. Save those gorgeous heirloom tomatoes for slicing and eating raw.

Do you have an abundance of fresh tomatoes, like I do? Try making charred tomato salsa or my Puff Pastry tomato tart. Two of my favorite recipes for using summer tomatoes!
