I made this especially for DH as he loves fresh tomato salads. I really liked how simple it was to make and so few ingredients, which when put together, made my man one happy camper :) A new keeper for the summer menu. Made for ZWT7 - Central & South America, for the HOT PINK LADIES !!

I enjoyed this refreshing, simple salad very much Leslie. It was quick and easy to make and tasted great. I used freshly picked sweet vine ripened tomatoes, sweet red onions and lots of fresh, spicy coriander leaves. It was the perfect side dish. Thanks for sharing.

This is pretty good, but I did think it could use a dash more oomph. A lot depends on the tomatoes. This is a good side to serve with strongly flavored dishes. Thanks for posting!

I had a salad similar to this when I was in Santiago, covering the FIDAE airshow back in '02, I think. It was at a very upscale restaurant there (expense accounts rock!) and came before a main course of sea bass, and it was fantastic. I made this today, just for myself, and gobbled it right up. I did add a little extra lemon juice, though, as I was dealing with a large plate and wanted to make sure it got spread around (just something others might want to keep in mind as they prepare this). Apart from that, however, this recipe is spot on! Tasted nearly exactly like what I was served in Chile. Thank you so much, Leslie! You really brought Chile back for me. I loved that trip to Santiago so much and would really like to go back again sometime, this time bringing my gf, who I'd just started dating when I got sent off for a week to cover that airshow. This time around, though, I'd definitely have to have her with me -- if for nothing else, just to try the food there (and to see the Andes and the beaches, too, of course!), maybe get a salad like this and some sea bass or scallops along with it. Mmmm...I think I've got a honeymoon destination when the time comes. lol

Tasty and a good use of fresh produce, but missing the wow factor. It is a quick and easy side. Thanks for the post.

Personally, I thought this was great. It was easy, fast, and fresh tasting. However, hubby didn't like it at all. He just left it on his plate. So... I guess it wasn't perfect. I did put a bit more cilantro on than the recipe called for, but hubby is OK with that herb. I think he just doesn't like tomatoes. Because of his reaction, I rated this one less star than I would have otherwise. If I had garden fresh tomatoes, maybe it would have been better?
