FREAKIN AWESOME!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are so delicious and didn't last long at our home over Memorial Day Weekend. Will definately keep this recipe close at hand for all the summer cookouts and things. I put a few of the leftover smaller bits into some pasta and chopped some chicken, added a few olives and had an instant pasta salad with the marinade and the smaller bits of tomato, excellent ! ! ! Good recipe for any time of year. A keeper recipe and one I'll share with everyone. Delish item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't have red wine vinegar (I hate when your pantry is empty of things you thought you had so I substituted 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 seasoned rice wine vinegar. I also added some cucumber (because it was in my fridge and some fresh cubed mozzarella. Turned out fabulous! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Makes winter store tomatoes taste good. Added avocados & red onion. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful Paula and it's the first recipe of yours I've ever made. I did use basil vs. parsley and real garlic vs. garlic salt but those are minor changes. Wonderful and healthy - I will definitely make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My sister brought me a bucket of fresh tomatoes from the garden so I needed to use them before they got to ripe. I wanted to do something other than make a sauce with them. I have to say that this recipe was a fantastic choice! The spices brought out the wonderfully fresh taste of the tomatoes and my whole family loved them! What a great way to get my kids to eat vegetables. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best ever ... especially if the tomatoes aren't all that "hot". I really enjoy the versatility of this recipe too.. It can be served in so many ways Mozzarella, over greens, croutons... you name it.. you got it! And, tons of compliments! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best tomatoes I ever had----bar none! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not a huge tomatoe fan, and this was very yummy. Still get great freshness from tomatoes, but marinade really enhances overall flavor! To my left overs the day after, I added some fresh mozzeralla like a play on Caprese salad - also very good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a very easy recipe!! I did make a few changes. I found the dressing too strong so instead of 1 tablespoon of sugar I added 4 teaspopons and included 1/4 cup of water to delute the strong taste of the vinegar in this dressing. I did not include the tyme. I did not use garlic salt as I found it added too much salt so I used garlic pwder instead. I marinated the tomatos for 5 hours in the refrigerator & found them excellent!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were so easy to make and so delicious! They went perfectly with my corn fritters and black eyed peas. Yumm! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Have made these for a few years. Enjoy all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We enjoyed this fresh recipe a whole lot. I marinated the tomatoes for over 3 hours on the counter. However, the red wine vinegar showed to be too strong for one of my guests and made her cough! Next time I will cut back on that and possibly add just a tad of sugar. Otherwise, it was enjoyed by all and I'll definitely make it again. Thanks, Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading the comments, I decided to make the recipe. I have been making marinated tomatoes with bottled balsamic dressings. I like them better than this recipe. With all the salt in the recipe, what is the sodium count in it? I don't know about the bottled dressings, but maybe less salt is used in them. I also add fresh chopped garlic instead of more salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We follow the directions exactly as it is and add in red onions and cucumbers. Very good on a warm day!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've never experienced tomatoes like this and it was great, a little tangy though. It made me pucker up quite a few times, but it's a great dish. Thanks Paual! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super easy prep, delicious results! Marinated overnight in the fridge and they were perfect. My husband enjoyed the tomatoes on crusty toasted bread. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe. A really nice way to use the tomatoes in my garden. I also cooked some pasta shells and added it to the mixtuer. It made a Great pasta saled!! Everyone just loved it. I didnt have fresh parsley on hand so I used dry parsley and I forgot to add the seasond salt. I did add some Accent and some celery salt to the mixture. It turned out so well that this is the recipe I will stick with. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Probably the best recipe I have received from Food Network. Period! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This marinade is perfect! I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Great at room temp or from the fridge! We loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don?t usually like tomatoes especially just to eat by themselves but I made them for a luncheon because I knew my guests liked tomatoes. I followed the recipe exactly, just marinated them for about 3 ? hrs and put them in fridge the last hour to chill. They were very good. I actually liked them and my guests loved them!!! I have been snacking on them all day. I plan to use what is left on sandwiches? and salads. I am going to make them often just to have on hand they are way better than eating plain tomatoes and really easy to make. Don?t be skeptical like I was, just make them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is absolutely the best. I used fresh sprigs of thyme (instead of dry) and added fresh chopped basil. This couldn't have been better..except for the salt. The next time I will use garlic powder rather than garlic salt to cut down on the amount of salt in the recipe. Nonetheless..it was wonderful ...couldn't have been better. I couldn't stop eating these tomatoes. Way to go Paula!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really liked these - even my kids liked them. Quick, easy and tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love marinated tomatoes and these were the best I've ever had. Perfect balance of sweet and savory. My wife doesn't eat tomatoes (she actually gives me her tomatoes off of her salad). She ate everyone one of these and commented on how great they were. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I got a few compliments on this one at my 4th of July bbq. It made a nice, pretty & super simple side dish that is made in advance. The online recipe is a little confusing, but as an fyi - you should marinate these overnight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for a fish fry that we had on the 4th of July. I used the cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. The taste is amazing!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for Easter dinner with the following slight changes -- used cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar because that is what I had on hand; used several smaller tomatoes which I quartered instead of large tomatoes because that is what the grocery store had on hand; let the tomatoes marinate overnight in the fridge because I needed to get them done ahead of time. When I tasted them at the beginning of the marination, I wasn't sure I would like the results. By the time the meal was served, the flavors had married and become "yummy". item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these last weekend for a party and everyone raved about them. I made them exactly as the recipe stated. I recommend not skimping with dried parsley and definitely use the fresh. I tripled the recipe for my crowd and 4 people asked for the recipe. After they marinated at room temp, I chilled them in the fridge. I drained them before serving and they were fantastic! I will definitely make them again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is definitely a keeper! After a few trials, I substituted olive oil for the amount of red wine vinegar and cut the tomatoes into small, cube-ish pieces to make a bruschetta-like dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These tomatoes were great! I look forward to making them again, and bringing them to a bbq or potluck to show off. My hubby who usually doesnt like vinegar based dishes, loved them. I drained them before I served them. A delicious easy and pretty dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These tomatoes are so delicious and the recipe is easy to follow. I have also used the marinade with blanched asparagus and they are just as delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so flavorful. I just can't tell you. Everyone loves it. All the different ingredients are so good together. Don't skip any of them. I let it marinate for about 6 hours before I serve it and it is just right. Even left overs the next day are great. Do make this and make alot, it will be gone because everyone will be there for seconds. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this for a side dish with dinner....and boy was it good. I substituted Balsalmic Vinegar for the red wine vinegar...and olive oil for vegetable oil....very yummy. Thanks Paula!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made the Marinated Tomatoes as a salad for a bar-b-que potluck, and it recieved rave reviews. The recipe has been requested several times. The plus side for making this recipe is that it was extremely easy to make and walk away until it was time to serve. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
WOW! How lucky am I that when I searched for marinated vegetables this recipe came in on top! Fantastic! I substituted Olive oil for the veg. oil - I also used 1/2 & 1/2 balsamic/redwine for the vinegars & 1/2 and 1/2 oregano/basil for the thyme - our preference - I also added fresh garlic and onion powder - TO DIE FOR!! Used tomatoes/cukes/orange peppers - WILL USE AGAIN AND AGAIN - THANKS PAULA! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe has great potential--the flavors are good, but the 3/4 cup of oil called for is insane. I repeat, insane. I used a half cup and the tomatoes were still too oily. I also ended up discarding quite a bit of marinade. Next time, I'm going to use 1/4 c. oil and decrease the vinegar as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe really does make even so-so tomatoes taste good but when you make it with ripe tomatoes it is out of this world! Made a double batch on family vacation last year and there wasn't any left. Can't wait for tomato season to get here! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these and kept them in a zip-lock bag in the fridge for several days, then I added them to fresh salads and used the marinade as a dressing. It was great with a little feta cheese and home-made croutons! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Even a teenage guest who had limited experience with foods (other than Mexican food) really loved this one. Thankfully this teen is open to new food experiences and he was surprised at how good it was. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We make these tomatoes for every family gathering. It is a must have in our family. I hate tomatoes but these are too bad. My husband makes them & it like to use vine ripened tomatoes. He thinks they have a beeter taste. He also like to cut them into slices. I can't remember if the recipe says fresh parsley but using frech parsley gives them a better taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a great way to dress up grocery store tomatoes. The marinade is flavorful without being too intense. I substituted olive oil for the vegetable oil, and I sliced up a bit of red onion intead of the scallions. I think it's delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this dish for Thanksgiving last year. Even my picky sister-in-law wanted the recipe! It was yummy ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I mixed both large tomatoes and cherry tomatoes together and they were all delicious. Had more flavor than either one would have had even with a salad dressing. Can't wait to take this recipe to the next family get together for everyone to taste! Thanks Paula. I'm one of your biggest fans! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe travels well, is a great use of my garden tomatoes and is absolutely delicious - recipes come and go in my house - this one has already become a favorite. I have made it at least 6 or 7 time this summer. I have served it as an appetizer course with toasted slices of a roasted garlic bread - it disappeared in a matter of minutes and my guest were using the bread to finish off the remaining juice. Kudos Paula - another great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the most delicious marinate for tomatoes I have ever tried. My family loved it so much that I had to make it over and over again. That is something I am not use to, especially for tomatoes. And it is so easy to make. This is also good for marinating red onions or putting it over your green salad for a salad dressing. item not reviewed by moderator and published

These tomatoes are EXCELLENT!! The recipie was easy; I made this salad with my first tomatoes of the season and just can't wait to make it again.

Made these to go with grilled k-bobs and we fell in love with these tomotoes. My mother-in-law even wanted the recipe! I put a little sweet-n-low instead of real sugar and they were wonderful.

This is marvelous!! Such a wonderful blend of flavors. I did use balsamic, my husbands favorite, olive oil and a little bit of fresh garlic. My tomatoes stood up to the marinade very well.

I have made this recipe many times. I love the extra marinade; mixed with leftover rice it is great for a room temp. side. If you cut the tomatoes into 6 wedges they do not get soggy, just wonderful. I have added cucumber, changed the green onion to red, varied the herbs, and it's always good. It is one of my favorite all purpose dressings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to make this recipe when my sister comes for dinner. It's her favorite side dish. We all love it. I did notice that the recipe says to marinate for 2 hours but in the tv program Paula says she marinates overnight. I've only tried the short method so far. It is such a pretty dish. You're the best, Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great summer salad! I made some adjustments and additions. First, I used half balsalmic and half red wine vinegar. Next I added some vidalia onion, fresh basil and right before serving, I crumbled feta on top. I think next time I make it I'll add some thinly slice garlic. Now I know what I'm going to do with my tomatoes when they come in! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Let me start by saying that Paula is easily one of my favorite cooks and I make alot of her recipes and love them! However, this one was just ok.

I've taken this recipe twice to church functions. It's excellent because it stays at room temperature. I was asked to bring it on the second occasion and several women asked for the recipe. I have saved the marinade in the refrigerator and added new tomatoes a few days later. It was just as good the second time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have to agree with the reviewer earlier who felt that the acidity of this recipe was a bit much. I also felt that there was far too much marinade for the amount of tomatoes called for. I may try this again, but will definitely make a few adjustments. item not reviewed by moderator and published
