Tomato and Onion Salad

Wow, I made this this past weekend and both my Mom and Sister raved about it..I liked it too

I don't really have a recipe but this is how I made it:

2 ripe small tomatoes
1/2 small red onion
salt / pepper
fresh Basil (handful)
fresh Italian/Flat Parsely (handful)
soft goat cheese (I used probably 2 oz or more)
balsamic vinegar 1 - 2 tblsp
olive oil 2 - 4 tblsp

chop tomatoes in bite size peices, halve the onion then quarter it, slice thin, toss together. add salt / pepper to taste, chop coarsely a small handful of basil and parsely add to bowl toss again. break the goat cheese into bite size peices and toss. I left this overnight only 'cause I made it early to take to the lake...I thought that after I added the cheese it might melt into the the tomato/onion mix....it worked!It made the juices nice and creamy. before serving I added the balsamic vinegar and the oil tossed and voila.

It was really good I am making it again tonight for my dinner. Enjoy pbp

My fave is thinly sliced cukes, plum tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms and green peppers. I make a marinade of tarragon vinegar, olive oil, fresh pepper and a dash of sugar. I mix the dressing, pour over veggies and toss it in fridge. Its like 1 tbl of herb vinegar, 1 tbl of oil, and 1/4 tsp of sugar for a quart? of veggies. After it marinates and I toss, I taste. If it's really good with spicy onions, I leave it alone. Otherwise, I might add fresh cracked pepper. Sometimes I add celery.

I'm sparse on dressings, because I think they ruin a salad. YMMV.
