Cracker Salad Recipe @pinch

Savor the taste of summer with this delicious cracker tomato salad. Bursting with flavor, the sweet tomatoes are complemented by red onions and tangy cheese. Bound together with creamy mayonnaise, this salad is a true crowd havepleaser. It is a different way to use fresh tomatoes and is perfect for any summer event. This is not a recipe that can be made ahead of time. It is really good after being chilled for a few hours, but the next day, due to the water of the tomatoes, it gets too soggy. I have had this recipe for a few years. A lady gave it to me at a gospel singing. She had brought it and I was surprised at how tasty it was. I have used it quite often since. It is simple and good.
