I love this bright, refreshing salad in the winter when days are damp and cold, and I am craving garden tomatoes. Look for Sweet Grape Tomatoes at your local supermarket. They brighten up this perky salad and the taste is a good substitute during winter days. This fruit and vegetable salad with champagne vinaigrette is also a great side dish. The champagne vinaigrette leaves a wonderful tingle on the tongue. The dressing give this combination of fruit and vegetables a new life and makes any winer meal feel a little like summer.
