Ingredients

  • 3 large tomatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Maui onion, cut into 3/4-inch pieces

Maui Onion Dressing:
  • 1 large Maui onion

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1/4 to 1/2 cup

  • Salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the onion on a large piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle the onion with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Wrap the onion tightly in the foil and roast until tender and lightly golden brown, about 50 minutes to 1 hour.

  • Remove from the oven and cool. When cool, roughly chop the onion and place in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. With the machine running, slowly add the remaining 1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil through the feed tube, until the dressing is smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
