Greek Tomato or Mixed Greens Salad

Greeks make this summer salad or variations of it - what is available, all year long.
In winter we use lots of different lettuce greens (arugula, dark and green lettuces, some bitter endives, we mix it up).
When only tomatoes are used "do not use vinegar" only the best extra virgin olive oil you like, the tomato acids are enough.

I never measure the dressing, just eyeball it - usually the salad is gone quickly when I bring to summer neighborhood gatherings, or recently to winter get-togethers.
I've heard some who may not know me "try the salad, it's really good".

This recipe has evolved, being a Greek who love salads, we add lettuce greens available locally at the Farmers Markets.
