Summer Tomato and Onion Platter

Total Time
Prep 3 hrs
Cook 0 mins

This is my dad's creation, and also the only thing I think he has ever "cooked" in his life, but he sure does this one good (proof that it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out/lol)!!! The amounts are approximate, as I have never really measured the ingredients. This is a wonderful, light, and refreshing side dish (or appy)in the summer; good for BBQ's. So simple, but so yummy (and it also looks very pretty:) Prep. includes refrigeration.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. On large platter, layer tomato and onion slices, overlapping slightly.
  2. Sprinkle sugar over all, followed by vinegar, and olive oil.
  3. Season to taste.
  4. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

Hi Manda See a slight variation of this in the recipe that I posted some time ago called "Simple Summer Tomato Salad" (Recipe# 30477). But, I am gonna try yours because I really believe that ultimate flavour of the dish is gonna be somewhat different. Just thought of sharing with you. Smiles Mini
