This salad is best served within an hour of making it, though it will last in your refrigerator for up to 3 days. If you have a smaller family, I suggest making a half batch of this recipe. If you can't find heirloom tomatoes, use any variety of organic, locally grown. If you can't find sweet onions use 3 to 4 green onions, sliced into thin rounds.
