A fantastic tomato salad to celebrate late summer:
Slice vidalia or other local sweet onion into half rings
Sweat in fry pan with 1/2 butter and 1/2 oil until soft
Add a spoon or two of brown sugar (to taste and to quanitity)
Continue to saute over medium heat until caramalized
Add a pinch of salt at the end to season
In the meantime, slice or dice tomatoes (depending on kind and size)
Once onions are ready and seasoned, toss them with the tomatoes.
Top with cubes or crumbles of goat cheese and if you have it on hand, some thinly sliced or chopped fresh basil.
Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve.
