    Totally delicious. I used three ripe truss tomatoes, 1/2 of a large red onion and a heaped tablespoon of chives that needed to be used up. I wondered if the lime might be too strong so added 1 teaspoon of olive oil, but really could have done with out it. Made and thoroughly enjoyed for an African Tag Game. Thanks very much for posting.

    Mmmm, this was delicious! So easy yet very tasty. The only thing I changed was to use less onion (otherwise it would have been too much for my taste) and swap the lime juice with apple cider vinegar because I cant have citrus.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, magpie! I will certainly make this again!<br/>Made and reviewed for my chosen chef during Veggie Swap #51 October 2012.

    Heirloom tomatoes and this salad were designed for each other! This salad makes a great guilt free side for any meal. I made using green zebra, brandywine and black kim tomatoes, did cut the onion back as I used a sweet onion that was larger than a grapefruit. This recipe begs for the freshest and best ingredients you can get. Thanks for the post.
