I should mention that the key to a tasty tomato salad is a good ripe tomato. You need to choose the type carefully (smaller the size, bigger the sliced pieces should be). I should mention that nothing would compare to the homegrown ones. Also, I would never skip adding fresh onion and garlic as they add that so delicious sharpness. In addition, you can use any type of vinegar: white wine vinegar, apple vinegar, balsamic vinegar, etc. Just check that the strength stays the same, around 5 %.
