Stick to the 1/4 c. of red onion. One of the times I made this, I just wanted to use up the rest of the onion...bad idea. 1/4 c. is the perfect amount. Other than that, I love this recipe. I've used it as a salsa for chips, a condiment on wraps, and eaten it straight as a salad. It's awesome and no-cook. It doesn't get much better than that!
I mixed things up a bit. I used grape tomatoes instead of medium vine ripened tomatoes. I also added in chopped yellow pepper. This was SO good! The dressing was perfect! Thanks!
This was a very nice salad with great flavor. I served it on a bed of lettuce along with lemon pepper grilled chicken and steamed rice. My wife commented on how delicious it was, and she does not particularly care for tomatoes but adores avocados. A touch of cilantro would make a nice addition to the presentation if you were serving it with a Mexican meal. This is a very versatile salad that could be paired with just about any dish.
