    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    I guess I have summer on my mind, because I only eat tomatoes when they come fresh from the garden (or garden stand). Then, there is nothing like a nice tomato salad. This recipe is a great combination, and surprisingly light. And it is pretty quick to pull together!

      What a wonderful supper!! I fixed the tomato and red onion salad about an hour ahead and marinated. All the flavors went together so beautifully; great meal!! Thank you, Jackie!! Made for the Eggs/Dairy Event in Cooking Photos.
