1 small red onion, sliced thinly

2 tablespoons small fresh basil leaves, sliced thinly

2 teaspoons olive oil

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

¼ teaspoon sugar

    Hi, I came across your recipe as I have tomatoes groaning on my tomato plants and a basket of them in the frig! I remembered my mom making a salad with red onions and fresh basil and tomatoes, and voila! You have it here :>). Thank you, and my prayers for your health.
