Tomatoes and Cheese Salad

Colleen Sowa


I love Italian tomato salads, This is another one that is flavorful, easy and inexpensive.

I just had surgery a week ago, and didn't feel like cooking for the church picnic, so I threw this together... my GO TO recipe for times like this...

It was enjoyed by all.... and some of the young people asked how I made it...
