This recipe tastes best freshly made, but if you would like to prepare it ahead, just keep the dressing separate and toss shortly before serving. Itís important to use nice ripe tomatoes for the best flavor. Diced beefsteak or halved grape tomatoes can be substituted for plum tomatoes if they arenít beautifully ripe.
