This tomato and onion salad with delicious fresh basil is the easiest and most satisfying salad I know how to make. It’s so juicy and sweet from the tomatoes with a little bit of a kick from the raw onion. My mother used to make this all the time and it’s a dish that’s stuck with me that I still love today. It’s great as a side with most meals but in the summer this would be a great side to your plant forward barbecue or to bring with you to a pot luck. It’s definitely a people pleaser and will take you only minutes to make!
