Not Your Average Tomato Basil Salad

Summer practically begs for fresh tomato and basil salads.  It is such a fresh combination, and summer is the perfect time for home grown basil.  Here is a tomato basil salad that will add some spice to any summer night… it certainly isn’t what you are expecting.  And one of my new favorites.
