  • Prepare the lemons. Here's how to cut the lemons into pretty segments. Be sure to save the scraps to use later to drizzle any excess juice over the salad.
  • Combine the salad ingredients. In a large serving bowl, combine the lemon segments, tomatoes, cucumber, onion and basil.
  • Add the dressing and serve. Drizzle the salad with any excess lemon juice from the scraps. (Use as much or as little as you'd like.) Then drizzle with the vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Toss, and season to taste with salt and pepper. (Here's How.) Serve cold.
