Polish Tomato Salad Recipe
Tomato salad RECIPE DIRECTIONS
1. Chop green onion and tomatoes and add salt. Stir and let sit while you prepare the rest. Do not discard tomato juice.
2. Chop basil (can use dried basil if you do not have fresh). Add rest of ingredients and combine all together in sour cream (or mix 50/50 with Greek yogurt, but not too much yogurt since the flavor comes from the sour cream).
3. Test for flavor. Notice that the sour cream dilutes the pepper, so you may need to add more.
4. Spread over toasted bread or lettuce and garnish with parsley. Even better, serve as a side to a hot plate of Polish pierogi.
