Mediterranean Tomato Salad

Mediterranean Tomato Salad
I first tried this salad at a small restaurant when I was living in Vienna, Austria.

I don’t remember if the restaurant was Italian or Greek that’s why I call this salad Mediterranean. It has olives, so it must be from there, right?

I also tried a similar salad here in Toronto at an Italian deli. So, maybe it’s Italian after all?

Regardless of the origin, I love this salad so much, I could eat it everyday for lunch and dinner.
