A mediterranean breakfast salad, often eaten in Israel. Use plain Greek yogurt, not regular yogurt. It is a thick yogurt; sold at some supermarkets and at specialty foods stores (such as Trader Joe's and Whole Foods Markets) and Greek markets. If unavailable, place regular yogurt in cheesecloth-lined strainer set over large bowl. Cover and chill overnight to drain. Campari tomatoes are about the size and shape of golf balls. They're sold on the vine, and they're available at many supermarkets. Another Epicurious recipe!
