This amazingly simple salad is refreshingly soothing on a hot summer day. My husband in a big lover of yogurt and this salad is something that he would pour on top of anything and everything if he had a choice. Though I don’t recommend that :), I think it tastes splendid plain by itself and goes very well with  with any spicy dish, like Biryanis, Pulaos, Indian breads etc. When paired with any dish, the slightly sour yogurt with luscious tomatoes and crunchy sweet onion chunks, though subdues the over effects of the spices, surprisingly forms a new intense flavor in the process.
