I love how rustic and simple this recipe is...tomato and onion are such a classic combo, and the more onion the better in my world. This would go perfectly with a nice hamburger steak or any other type of steak while I'm thinking about. Ribeye...yum! I'm not sure I'll add the sugar when I make it, as I don't think it needs it and I'm trying to keep the sugar out of my diet.

No onions please! Just tomatoes, cucumbers and bottled Italian dressing! Yummy!

Added sweet colorful peppers to it. Yummy

very tasty, cool and refreshing. we use some kind tomato salad all summer/ as long as fresh tomatoes are available.

Growing up, my parents made this all summer long. They also added pealed, thinly sliced cucumbers. to make it easier, they used an Italian salad dressing in a bottle. Thanks for the memories!

great salad bwe add thin sliced cucumber to salad

I have made this recipe many times. It is very tasty not to mention a great way to use up extra tomatoes! This is a keeper in my families lunches or dinners!

The tomatoes in the picture look skinned, the directions do not state 'skin tomatoes'. Are they skin off?

They are not skinned.

Sounds tasty, but Amish refrigerators...? ;-p

yes, gas powered

I have made this many times. I did not know it was a recipe. Funny.

This was so good and very tasty. Tonight was the third time we had this for dinner!

This was very good!!!!! Will make again and again!

Having Mennonite relatives, I have eaten this dish many times, but I can not remember ever having it in the winter. I suppose you could try a jar or so and see what happens. Good luck to you.

Could this recipe be canned, without having to cook it? By that I mean just sealed in a water bath. Wouldn't the vinegar & salt act as preservatives?

When it comes to canning, I never take chances, especially with uncooked onions in the mix. Canning would remove the fresh quality of this dish, though. Tastes better refrigerated.
