Will tomatoes in a pasta salad lose flavor in the fridge for 6 or 8 hours?

Or is it ok to leave the salad at room temp for that long?  It's about 75 deg today and the salad has an oil and vinegar dressing.

I wouldn't leave it out of the fridge and I don't think they will lose flavor in the refrigerator. But if you're worried about that omit the tomatoes and add them before you serve the salad.

Thinking you plan to serve/eat this tomorrow??  I REALLY don't like COLD tomatoes in any salad.  Would put salad in fridge for night with everything except the tomatoes.  When ready to eat, add the tomatoes and toss.
