People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen

one of my favorite salads from growing up. Fresh ripe home grown tomatoes, sliced bite sized. Red onion, thin slices. Olive oil, I prefer Non virgin for this since taste is too strong. Good red wine vinegar. Crumbled feta cheese. Salt (personal preference, may not be required for some due to feta), black pepper.

Prepare 30 mins before so tomatoes will release juices. Make sure at tomatoes at room temp. Some people put them in refrigerator.

Claudio, when I was a kid, I HATED TOMATOES! I mean gag reflex hate. As I've gotten older and cooked more, I love 'em. Except, if I had to take a bite out of a straight raw tomato, NO. Still can't do it. It's funny how in America everybody thinks there has to be a green leafy something in it to qualify as a salad. Not true.
