What kind of tomatoes should I use to make tomato salad?

Cherry and grape tomatoes are both great options for making tomato salad. You can also dice up heirloom tomatoes, romas, and other garden tomato varieties. They will all work great in this recipe, though cherry and grape tomatoes produce the prettier result.

Can I add cheese to tomato salad?

Yes you can! This recipe would go well with 1/4 to 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese, or some fresh mini mozzarella balls. Just be warned that the dressing will discolor the cheese so it is best to add the cheese right before serving.
