Tomato Onion Salad
1 white onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon coarse salt
2 cups hot water
3 vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced
Juice of 1 lemon
Combine onion slices and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a medium bowl; pour the hot
water over the onions. Set aside 1 minute; remove the onions from the bowl with
tongs, squeezing with your hands to remove excess water. Set aside to dry on
paper towels, about 5 minutes. Discard water; dry bowl.
Gently toss the sliced tomatoes and onions in the bowl with lemon juice and
remaining 1/2 teaspoon of the salt.
