Directions:
Slice the onion in half from tip to root. Continue slicing the onion tip to root into very thin pieces. Place the onion slices in a bowl and mix in 2 Tbsp of salt. The salt will remove the moisture and strong onion flavor.

Remove the tomato core and cut into half along the equator. Then slice the tomatoes into thin bite-size wedges. Place tomatoes into a large serving bowl.

Thoroughly wash the onion salt mixture and squeeze the onions dry with your hands. Then add it to the tomato slices. Add the oil, cilantro and minced garlic (optional). Mix well and serve.
