Very colorful and simple to make. I used a Vildalia onion and 1 red and 1 yellow tomato. It is very important to let chill for a few hours (as written in the recipe) for the flavors to truly develop. As another reviewer mentioned, I think I would add cider vinegar w/ a pinch of sugar next time to liven up the taste. This makes a lovely way to use summer produce. Thanx for posting!

This was slightly boring to me. I might try it again with some vinegar added to it.

This is a wonderful salad that will surely please everyone. I loved the fact that it can be made ahead of time. I used 2 garlic cloves which suited us just fine. This is a winner, for sure. Thanks for sharing, Chef #246898.
