Here is another easy salad to try in place of the usual macaroni or potato salad. Especially tasty if the ingredients are fresh from your own garden. Some fresh pulled Mozzarella cheese on the side may be just the thing to go with it. Sounds wonderfully like "summer"!
6 (1/4 inch thick) slices tomato
6 red onion slices
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
4 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon sugar
Place tomatoes in a shallow dish; top each slice with an onion. In a small jar with tight-fitting lid, combine remaining ingredients; shake well. Pour over tomatoes and onions. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
