1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp prepared horseradish

Mix onion and 1 tablespoon vinegar in a large bowl.  Let macerate 10 minutes, tossing often.  Add tomatoes, celery, and olives.

Whisk remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, olive brine, horseradish, and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl.  Slowly whisk in oil.  Add to bowl with tomato mixture; toss to coat.  Season with salt and pepper.
