Sounds like a tasty salad.

This time of year hard to get good tasting tomatoes i’ll try this with a store bought pico and post my results.

This time of year the only tomato I like is Roma. I place them in a window and let them fully ripen. They actually taste like a tomato. Another option is to use canned diced tomatoes, better yet homemade canned tomatoes. I bought a bushel from the farmers market, and my wife canned several quart and pint jars.
