What a simple refreshing salad! The only thing I did a little differently was to sprinkle the salt directly on the tomatoes.

This was a wonderful way to prepare fresh tomatoes and keep them refreshingly cool. I served them with Japanese Ribs, and it was a great side dish. I went with the full amount of honey, and I really liked it and didn't think it was overly sweet, and I'd keep that same amount the next time I make this recipe. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Leggy Peggy. Made for Culinary Quest 2016 (Japan).

Made for the Japan leg of Culinary Quest #3 - For the most part, I made your recipe as written. While I didn't change the heart of it, I did alter its color profile by using a mixture of red & white onion & adding a sprinkle of dried parsley. I had never cooked even 1 Japanese recipe in my lifetime, so Siggi's expectations were very low. But he was pleasantly surprised to taste something familiar to him that was brightly crisp & well-flavored. He is the harsher critic of the 2 of us, so your recipe was a clear success. Thx for sharing it w/us Peggy. :-)

We love tomatoes and this salad was fantastic! I only used one teaspoon of honey and a red onion. I did add some fresh ground black pepper and salt to the tomatoes before adding the onion and dressing. Will definitely make again! Made and reviewed for the Culinary Quest 2016 - Japan.

Quick and delicious! I went with one teaspoon of honey and I thought that balanced out the flavours nicely.

What could be better than tomatoes and onions and easy, also. We really liked the addition of honey, it took the bite of the vinegar away and left a nice flavor. Can't wait to try these in the summer when we have nice fresh tomatoes.

The dressing makes this fabulous! Drools & raves all around. I will use shallot vs. regukar onion next time, tho, for a more delicate flavor. Made for Tomato Tag in the Diabetic Forum 4/12. Thanks, Peggy!
