Garden-Fresh Tomato Salad or “Tom” Salad

I call this “Tom” Salad because my husband really does make one awesome tomato salad.  He puts a bunch of different spices in it.  Whatever he feels like.  This is what I have caught him putting in to it.

  • 2 large, ripe tomatoes
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • one long-hot pepper, seeded, deveined and cut in to rings
  • salt – a couple of pinches
  • pepper – a couple of grindings
  • garlic powder – a couple of shakes
  • 2 Tbps. olive oil
  • 4 or 5 basil leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. dry parsley

Cut tomatoes into one-inch chunks.  Add sliced onion and pepper.  Season with salt, pepper, garlic salt.  Pour in olive oil.  Turn to coat.  Add parsley and basil. Turn again.  Refrigerate and serve.
