Author Notes: I have been making this recipe for quite some time. The original idea I think it came out of a magazine. For the Olive oil use a really good one. Garlic: do NOT use a garlic press. If you do not have goat cheese, Feta also tastes good, less creamy though. If there is ant tomatoes leftover, just add a little sugar, some Balsamic and you have a nice salad. A TIP: if the store bought tomatoes don't taste as sweet as homegrown, add a little sugar to the cut up tomatoes and let them sit a while. —Juergen Hartl
