Summer Tomato Salad from Amy

Thank you to everyone that attended the food preservation class last night.  We learned about hot water bath canning and pickling while enjoying this salad as an appetizer.  It is adapted from Gourmet Magazine to fit the ingredients in my garden.  I have grape tomatoes, basil, tarragon, mint and parsley growing in my yard.  This version will feed eight to ten people.
