Fall Salad

I call this “fall salad” but we have it any time of the year. It’s one of my favorite salads. I have to admit, salads are one of my most favorite things in the world. All kinds of them. We always had a gigantic garden every year when I was growing up, and we canned alot, but we also had tons of fresh veggies all summer. I think we had tomatoes every night with dinner. Sliced thick, raw, sprinkled with salt & pepper….it never gets old. Although now I do like to sprinkle them with chiffonade of fresh basil. And if I’m feeling fancy schmany a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar. yum.. But I have to fill my raw vegetable cravings with salads and such when the tomatoes are out of season and taste like air from the store. We make this dish alot for a side dish when company comes over, everyone always seems to love it.  I did not give amounts, just trust your own judgment on what you like. And be sure to use the Onion Salad Dressing on it. It’s perfect together.
