    AuntWoofieWoof's Note:

    This is something I have been making for a while. I finally figured out how to cut down on the brine taste so that I could taste the other ingredients as well. The addition of sugar was the answer.I tried omitting the brine, but then the salad wasn't as moist as I was hoping it would be and the tomato pieces turned mushy after a couple of days. If you are going to be eating the salad in one day, you can probably omit the brines altogether. The ingredients blend really well together and are quite tasty. Make this at least one hour before serving it to allow everything to meld together. To save money, slice the olives yourself. The amounts of the olives, green onions/scallions and tomato are approximate and depends on what size of each ingredient you use. This salad is versatile and will go with many things. The sodium content is probably high in this recipe so you will want to serve it with something that has less salt. Cook time is the refrigeration time. ..

      Have lots of red, ripe, juicy tomatoes from the garden ! Used 10 Romas, seeded and chopped, and HUGE stuffed Manzanilla green olives with Kalamatas. Thought the 2 tsp. of brine not "wet" enough, so added 2 tsp. light olive oil. Was a very tasty salad with sauteed, breaded tilapia - almost a salsa. DO NOT add salt ! A little fresh ground pepper is good. Thanks for posting, AuntWoofie.

      This is a wonderful salad! It looks pretty and goes together easily. I had small olives so only cut them in half. I can't wait to make this when I have my garden tomatoes, imagine that will be even better! I also think it would be great with a little feta sprinkled on top and will try that with the remaining.
