I would cut at least half the oil in this recipe, turns out to be way to much and I even added an extra cucumber to the mix. I would compare this to adding an entire bottle of oily dressing to a small salad..sorry did not work for me

This was FABULOUS! I used red onion(about 1/2 of a lg onion), white wine vinegar, & grape tomatoes cut in 1/2. I can't rave enough about this! It was a HUGE hit this weekend!

I can't believe I saw this recipe. I have a Cost Plus shaker salad dressing jar that has recipes on the side. This was the exact recipe. except for added basil. I made it last week for the first time for a dinner party and it was a hit. Especially good served over (or mixed in) cottage cheese

WOW !! I have been looking high and low for such a recipe since I am a huge fan of tomatoes and white or sweet onions. I have eaten this sort of salad in restaurants but could never get the recipe. In any case, there was never any guarantee of a restaurant's marinade so it is / was nice to make my own. The taste, after 8 hours, covered in the fridge was superb.

At first I thought, whoa, this is way too much onion and way too much seasoned salt. But after letting it marinate overnight, the flavors blended together nicely. However, it makes alot more than 2 servings.

Summery, tangy and simple. It was a nice accompaniment to our grilled steaks.

I cut the oil in this recipe in half and it was still too much. I also used 3 tomatoes, 1/2 a sweet onion and some green onions, and red wine vinegar. I think it's a great starting place, but next time I will use half again of the oil.
