How to make balsamic tomato salad
This tomato salad is one of the easiest recipes that can be done in just a couple of minutes. You can choose to substitute dill for any other herb(s) of your choice. I like to use white balsamic vinegar in simple recipes like this one rather than dark balsamic vinegar; I find that it gives a lighter taste to the salad.
