Greek Style Tomato Salad

Here is a wonderful recipe that is made in 
our home summer after summer.  I love how home grown tomatoes taste and this salad makes them taste even better!

6 medium size tomatoes, sliced
1/4 lb feta cheese, crumbled
1 medium size red onion, thinly sliced
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 TBS parsley
3  1/s oz. can pitted ripe olives, drained and sliced
4 tsp sugar
1 TBS chopped fresh basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup olive oil

Make about 2 1/2 hours before serving or early in the day.  Mix the vinegar, parsley, sugar, basil, salt, pepper and olive oil and set aside.  Make sure the sugar is dissolved.  Layer tomatoes, feta, red onion and olives until all are used and then pour wet ingredients over the top and gently toss together, ensuring not to tear up the tomatoes.  Cover and chill for about 2 hours.  Serve cold and enjoy!
