Great combination of ingredients. I only had a white onion and it contrasted nicely with the mostly red tomatoes. Went nicely next to a pasta salad for lunch.

What a tasty tomato salad this is, everyone loved this. I made this using white wine vinegar in lieu of the red wine vinegar, just because I was using yellow tomatoes and the red might of discolored the tomatoes. I think some cubes of mozzarella cheese in here would bring this over the top! However, it was delicious as is.
