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!!!
