Quick Easy and Simple

This salad is similar to the other one I posted.  However this one has a balsamic drizzle on it and without pasta.  It was just as awesome and delicious. There was NO leftovers. Recently we were invited to have dinner at my folks' house before all my brothers went back to college for the semester, so I made this recipe.  Dad barbecued burgers...this was a good topping.

Summer Tomato Salad with Balsamic Red Onions
adapted from:

2T balsamic vinegar
2T olive oil
1T sea salt
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
3 Roma tomatoes, chunked into 8ths
3/4 cup fresh cheese (again my husband's homemade stuff - I think cut up string cheese would taste good too)
1T Italian seasoning
1T fresh basil, chopped

In a bowl whisk together balsamic, oil and salt.  Stir in onion - coating all the pieces.  Cover and place in the fridge for at least 3hours. As the 3 hours winds down, chop up the tomatoes, and cheese. Place all in the bowl with the onions (don't dump the marinade). Toss with Italian seasoning. Let rest for about 45minutes to an hour before serving. Sprinkle with fresh basil.
NOTE: This salad would be tasty as a topping for a crusty baguette.
