Tomato, Zucchini, and Red Onion Salad

Here’s a tasty salad to make when zucchini and tomatoes are abundant in late summer. Red onions, parsley, and olives add great flavor. I prefer Roma tomatoes in this salad, as their slices match the zucchini and they get less watery when standing, but use any ripe tomatoes you have available. Photos by Evan Atlas.
