My Favorite Finds #2

I plant tomatoes every year because they are so easy to grow and there's always a guarantee I will have plenty to go around and there's nothing like a home-grown tomato! I usually grow three types......"regular", plum and a grape or cherry tomato. Here's a simple yet delicious recipe for them! The recipe calls for large tomatoes, but you can replace them with grape or cherry tomatoes sliced in half. I first got to taste this recipe when I attended an Italian-American club meeting with my Italian friend from work. What a treat!

Tomato Onion Salad
4 large tomatoes, sliced
2 medium sweet onions, thinly sliced and separated into rings
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Layer tomatoes and onions in a shallow serving dish. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the remaining ingredients; shake well. Drizzle over salad. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Yield: 6 servings
