Tomato, Onion and Lemon basil vinaigrette

Posted in: Appetizer, main dish, Salad, Vegetables

Fast salad for dinner or lunch.

Minimum ingredients and maximum delight:-)

Will taste best with mashed potato and meat, or rice and fish. Something not s picy and not sour.

Preparation time: 0h:10m


2 tomatoes

1/2 white onion

1/3 cup of herbs (dill, parsley, basil: any)

1 pinch salt

1 pinch black fresh ground pepper

2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

                                                                                                                                                                                                        1 teaspoon vinegar (any)

Peel the onion. Wash onion, tomatoes and herbs.

Cut the tomato in halves, then cut the half in two and cut in thin slices.

Slice 1/2 of onion (very thin slices).

Finely chop herbs.

Vinaigrette sauce:

Mix: vinegar with olive oil add salt and pepper.

Pour into your salad and mix very well.
