  • Medium bowl
  • Colander


  • 2 medium Red onions
  • 1 large Ripe tomato
  • 1 pinch Salt


  • Preheat oven to 500°F (260°C). Peel 2 red onions, cut in half, and slice off the ends. Slice each half into thin ⅛-inch slices. Separate shreds into a colander and rinse several times, gently squeezing between rinses. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Wash 1 ripe tomato, wipe dry, and rub with a little oil. Place tomato on a tray and bake for 15 minutes. The tomato should be fully cooked and very soft with the skin cracked and charred. Let the tomato get cool enough to handle and then peel. Move skinless tomato to a serving dish and mash tomato to a lumpy mass with a fork or potato masher. Add onions and mix together thoroughly. Season with salt.
