We have a ton of homegrown tomatoes so this was a nice one to try with them! I made it and served it right away. Doing that, I didn't feel like it had enough olive oil. There just was not much olive oil taste on the tomatoes. When it sat it got more flavorful. A good option, I'll just up the olive oil a bit next time!

What a pretty salad! I loved the fresh lemon juice over the tomatoes and onion - simple to make with simple summer-time flavors. Made for ZWT4.

Well the first problem was, my family never got to taste this... Oh well...as they say, "their loss!" Darn it to blast-O, I used two large tomatoes, fresh red onion from the basement, pulled in from the garden recently, some really magnificent extra virgin olive oil, (that I had saved stashed in the back of the pantry so no one knows...hee hee), fresh lemon juice and fresh cilantro. Can we all see why the "fam" didn't get this? Could it be that my fork when wild, and devoured the whole lot up. You bet and I did. Darn proud of myself too. So when you get this recipe, I would hide it too. Shhh...Made for Aussie New Zealand swap Novembre 2009

SO good! I put the dressing into a shaker bottle so that each could add to their own preferences. This was great with fresh Ontario tomatoes. :) Thank you for sharing this. It certainly perked up steak night!

Just for back from Santiago Chile. Had this salad at a nice resturant and had it with locals. What I didn't learn from nice resturant is that the salad is to be added to the food. Whether it's with the rice or in soup, it doesn't matter. They also spread it on their bread with just a dab of softened butter. Very tasty!!

Perfect! I used vine-grown tomatoes and red onion and devoured this. So simple and so good. Thanks Leslie for another keeper. Made for ZWT7 for the Emerald City Shakers.
