Polish Tomato and Onion Salad {Pomidory z Cebulą}

16 / 100

How many times you have a pretty good idea what protein and starch to make for dinner, but the thought of coming up with a salad has you staring into the distance. I totally understand! Here is a trick, go down the list of ingredients you have to decide, carrot = carrot salad, cooked beets = beet salad, leek = leek salad, cucumber = cucumber salad. Problem is, I may not always have any of the above, but tomatoes… I always have tomatoes  = tomato and onion salad. Quick and easy summer salad, goes well with pretty much anything, meat, pierogi, sandwiches, is cool and refreshing and puts a small dent in the tomato stash that you have after this summer harvest. Done and done!

I made it twice this week! 🙂

Polish Tomato and Onion Salad {Pomidory z Cebulą}

  • Yields: 3-4 servings
  • Prep Time: 10 min


  • 5-6 medium tomatoes
  • 1/2 medium onion (or more)
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream (plain or Greek yoghurt works well also)
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Wash and dry tomatoes. Cut into good-sized chunks. Thinly slice the onion. Add sour cream, salt, and pep- per. Mix.

  2. If too dry, add a bit more sour cream, but let sit for a few minutes; it will become more watery.

  3. Chill before serving.

Can you tell that the tomatoes taste sweeter and more potent in the summer. I eat a lot more of them when they’re in season. What’s your favorite tomato salad? Hope you give this one a try.

  1. You look to have a very nice site. I’ll surely try the recipes. I’m third generation Polish and so is my husband. We were both born here in the USA. Have you heard of the Golec uOkiestra….?

  2. I grow lots of different varieties of tomato. I have an allotment and greenhouse. The tomatoes sold in supermarkets are watery and tasteless. One of my favourite tomatoes is ‘ Roma ‘. One that the Italians use for canning . Less seeds and more flesh and elongated so when it comes to slicing you get more slices and less ends. Xx
