Tomato, Onion And Basil Salad

Jyl.Ferris's picture
This is a salad my mother made when I was growing up and I loved it. I added the basil which gave it another layer of flavor. The taste is so bright so it pairs well with grilled meats. I tossed it with an orange vinaigrette. It's so easy to make your own salad dressing. Make a whole jar and put it in the refrigerator.
