'Purple Cherokee" Heirloom Tomato Salad

The 'Purple Cherokee' is by far one of the best heirloom tomatoes you can grow. Sweet with no acidity. Meaty and did I say sweet.

Here is a basic tomato, onion and cucumber salad. The 'Purple Cherokee' is so good you don't want to smother it in other stuff. This recipe is just salt, olive oil, garlic powder, and pepper. You don't want acidify the salad with vinegar.
