I’ve been very lucky this last week to receive fresh tomatoes from a few of my friends organic gardens, but being one of the only tomato eaters in the house I was a little hard pressed to use them all. The cherry tomatoes went fast as my youngest loves them but the rest a no go. I peeled and froze most of them with the hopes of using them in a future soup or sauce and the rest I made into this delicious salad. Its perfect as a quick snack or a meal and would work really well at a picnic.
(not my best pic as I had already eaten most of the dish at this point)
- tomatoes (I would imagine any kind would work) 2- 3 med
- cilantro -fresh and chopped- hand full
- chunk of red onion or 2 green onions
- olive oil- few tbl
- juice from half a lemon
- curry powder -1- 2 tsp
I have the bad habit of not really measuring anything and just free pouring so the measurements are a guess and you can adjust them for your own taste. Also the measurements would serve 2 to 3 people I imagine.
Slice the tomatoes, chop the cilantro and dice the onions. Mix the dressing (rest of the ingredients) and pour over the veggies. I find this salad is best when it has a few hours or a day to sit as the flavours really meld.
You could pair this up with my chicken nuggets, happy picnicking!!
