Cherry Tomato and Onion Salad
Pear or grape tomatoes can also be used here; just halve or quarter them accordingly.
Why This Recipe Works
The combination of cherry tomatoes and onions makes a perfect summer salad, as long as the tomatoes don’t become watery and the onion isn’t too harsh. For our Cherry Tomato and Onion Salad recipe, we found that halving and salting the tomatoes and discarding the liquid they exuded kept the salad from turning watery. Heating the chopped onion briefly in olive oil softened its flavor and texture, and the resulting onion-infused olive oil made the perfect mild vinaigrette for our Cherry Tomato and Onion Salad.
