My husband makes a delicious Italian Tomato Salad that is so simple, its only made with red juicy tomatoes, sweet red onions, extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar and a pinch of salt. It's an amazing low-calorie vegetable side salad that is refreshing for lunch or dinner anytime!
Juicy red tomatoes on the vine is what we like to use. These tomatoes are fire red, very flavorful and high in antioxidants! These tomatoes can be found in almost every supermarket practically all year long. It is a very quick and easy salad to make. You only need a few minutes to get it to the table.
My husband believes if you use really good quality extra virgin olive oil imported from Italy, with good quality tomatoes, there is no reason to add anything else.
Serve this tomato salad to compliment with any grilled meat, veal cutlets or roasted chicken and you have a delicious meal for the whole family!
