Made this twice. The first time round the onion was way too strong (even though I served this salad with bread and quite strong cheese). The second time I used only half an onion and, like kenny007, added some lemon juice. It turned out really good. Perhaps it would have been better had I served wedges of lemon on the side, because a combination of tomatoes, cucumbers and lemon juice produced a lot of liquid, which can make the salad a bit soggy.

Made this last weekend as a starter together with onion bhajis and raita... I added small cubes of carrots, and seasoned with a little salt and some lemon juice... very nice :-)

I found the onion a little strong (the one i used was quite big) but other than that it was lovely and refreshing and so easy to throw together, definately a winner for an event such as a summer bbq. Next time i'm going to try adding fresh lime juice as recommended in some of the other comments.
