My Mom's "Tomaten Salat mit Zwiebeln" (Tomato Salad) - fresh from the garden...

As my parents had so many fresh vegatables from their garden, we tried to use some of them. My Mom makes a very simple but delicious tomato salad which tastes even better with those tasty tomatoes from the garden.

The tomato salad is a perfect little addition/side dish to her Ćevapčići (an oriental dish of grilled spiced ground beef roles - traditional recipe from the Balkans with origin in former Slovenia where my father was born).


  • 3 big tomatoes
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoon pumpkin seed oil
  •  salt, pepper



  1. Half the onions and the tomatoes and slice them. Add them to a bowl.
  2. Add the dressing. Start with pouring first the cider directly over the salad. Then pour the oils  and spice with salt and pepper. Mix the salad strongly. My Mom always adds the vinegar, oil, and spices directly over the salad but you can also prepare the dressing separately. However, always start with the vinegar as it mixes easier as when you start with the oil.
