I've made this recipe for years. My recipe is called "Greek Style Tomatoes" and it has always been a favorite with family and company!!! The only additions I have is a tsp of parsley, l/2 tsp sugar and salt and cracked pepper to taste. Refrigerate two hours to let flavors blend together."

"The flavor combination of tomato, onion, feta and ripe olives is great (and it looked so appealing on the plate). The dressing was just too strong and dominated the salad."

"After making a trip to East Texas, I needed a recipe to spotlight the delicious East Texas tomatoes (and sweet Noonday, Texas onions) I purchased. This was a great recipe to use. Since I was planning to couple it with falafel I decided to make it a bit more Mediterranean and used Kalamata olives. I used garlic-flavored rice vinegar, cut back slightly on the basil and oregano, added a bit more garlic (I ALWAYS add more garlic!), sprinkled a bit of salt over all and let it marinate while I fixed the rest of supper. Delicious!"
