Tomato Salad

Tomato Salad

In the summer time, tomatoes are available around here in abundance. Farmers sell boxes of seconds (canners) for $10 per 1/2 bushel box. I buy a box and put them in the refrigerator, and we eat tomato salads all summer long. Sometimes we just slice tomatoes on a plate, but if we want a nice salad, this is our favorite recipe. Mmmmm!
