    Very simple, and quick to put together. Unfortunately I did not have fresh herbs, so had to use quality dried. I cut the herbs down by half. Added a small amount of sugar, and red wine vinegar to the dressing. Substituted the Parmesan for Feta cheese. Worked perfectly with my Lasagna dinner last night!  -  12 Jan 2013


    Sliced tomatoes with herbs and olive oil is a staple in my house. But for some reason, this was particularly delicious. Maybe it's the COMBINATION of herbs which makes it so special. Or maybe it's the minced garlic or Parmesan cheese, which I don't generally use. Just don't refrigerate this, which is always a no-no with fresh tomatoes.  -  26 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made one big change that made this delicious, even though I had to use some bottled spices because I didn't have fresh on hand. I added two tablespoons of red wine vinegar, oh my god good. This even smelled awesome while I made it, and because of timing it didn't get to sit for long either. The red wine vinegar was even better than balsamic, which I didn't think was possible. If I make this recipe again with fresh ingredients and enough time to marinate, this recipe is 10 stars! I will make this again for sure!  -  31 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
