Nutritional Info – Please keep in mind that the nutritional information provided is only an estimate and can vary based on the products used.
- It is important to let the salad sit for half an hour before serving. The flavors will meld together, and tomatoes always taste better at room temperature.
- For great tomatoes, always store them on a platter, on your countertop. Avoid letting them touch each other, and don't stack them. Never refrigerate tomatoes.
- The same goes for the onions. Store them in a cool, dry, dark place -not in your fridge. When the onion is chilled, the cold temperature converts the starch to sugars, and onions become soft or soggy. Don't store them in a bag; they need air to breathe. Keep the onions separate from potatoes; they can speed up an onion's decomposition due to excreted moisture.
