Tomato/Onion Salad

This is a very simple salad, and oh so tasty. I don't know about you, but I love, love, love fresh tomatoes. As you can see my ingredients are few. When it comes to left-over tomatoes I don't like to keep them. I like to make, or slice just enough to eat for the meal. Yes, I am picky when it comes to tomatoes. The few ingredients are: Three large tomatoes, onion, fresh ground pepper, and Kraft Greek Vinaigrette salad dressing. There are many options with this recipe. You could add sliced black olives, garbanzo beans, feta cheese, slices of green, yellow, or red pepper, and even sliced green olives. There are endless possibilities to tomato salad....

Tomatoes~It's hard to believe that such a widely-used food source was once considered poisonous. Tomatoes are available year round in fresh and preserved form. What would we do without ketchup for our fries?
Did you know that the tomato was once called the wolfpeach? Peach, because it is round and luscious, and wolf because it was considered poisonous. It was believed that the tomato was able to kill a wolf. Crazy huh?
The French referred to the tomato as pommes d'amour, or love apples. They thought the tomato to have stimulating aphrodisiacal properties.
In 1897, soup tycoon Joseph Campbell came out with condensed tomato soup. This move set the Campbell company on the road to wealth, as well as further endearing the tomato to the general public. Way to go Joseph!! There is nothing better than a bowl of Campbell's tomato soup and grilled cheese. MM GOOD!!
