Reminds me of being in Corfu in the summer. A squeeze of lemon along extra olive oil really aided this dish for me and I also added an avocado that was in the fridge that just sat on top. A perfect Sunday evening supper.

Delicious!!! I have to thank Frogma for the advice with the onion, I left the slices of onion in a bit of lemon juice while preparing the rest of the salad, at the end I added the onion with the lemon juice to the salad and it worked excellent. I changed the amount of ingredients 3 large tomatoes and 2 cucumbers. My family love it THANKS!!!
