The refrigerator light goes on...

I love this recipe with the roasted tomatoes. The salad is a lovely bright lemony dill flavor and the tomatoes add the sweetness. If you are going to serve this on sandwiches or just as part of a composed salad a touch of tomato paste - about 2 teaspoons - will give it a similar sweet flavor.
