Egg and tomato salad

This is supposed to be a little side dish with salted egg and tomatoes. in the local lingo it is called “Itlog na maalat at kamatis”.
The eggs are boiled whole with the shell in a mixture of salt, water, rice wine and peppercorns and seeped in the brine for  720 hours. I’m not so fond of these salted eggs so I made the salad with regular hardboiled eggs.
This is a type of salad often served with salty food and rice in the Philippines, there are several variations, some use vinegar, some like soy sauce, some use onions in it.
2 eggs
1 tomato
1/4 finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
Finely chop the onion and mix it with fish sauce and lemon juice
Dice eggs and tomatoes and combine this with the onions. Garnish some chives on top for color.
