As served at Hacienda Los Lingues in Chile, the oldest hacienda in South America. Serve this at your next cookout. It is terrific.

- 1⁄2 cup olive oil

- fresh ground pepper, to taste
- In a large salad bowl, combine tomatoes, sweet onion, cilantro, vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste, and olive oil.

Very nice salad. I doubled the vinegar mix for more dressing. We love tomatoes and onions, this was perfect for us. Thanks for the recipe!
Oh this was SO good! I made this to accompany our Welsh Rabbit and it was a perfect foil for the tangy melted cheese on toast! Maybe not a traditional accompaniment - but it did work well! I did not have enough fresh coriander/cilantro in the garden - so I added a little bit of fresh flat leaf parsley to plump up the greens element! I used a lovely local red onion and this salad was simple and yet very sophisticated. Made for ZWT3 and thoroughly enjoyed! FT:-)
This was so tangy and refreshing! We didn't use the coriander but followed the recipe exactly otherwise and we rewarded with a lovely salad!
