Easy Tomato Salad Recipe

A Juicy Tomato Salad That'll Have You Yearning For Summer

The following post was written by Valerie Rice, who blogs at Eat Drink Garden With Valerie Rice and is part of POPSUGAR Select Food.

There is some sort of magic at work when your garden produces juicy and delectable tomatoes. If you are working with garden-fresh produce there isn't much you need to do with it to make it delicious and special. This salad is a great example. With a few simple additions you have a gorgeous dish that is equally at home aside roasted lamb or burgers off the grill.

When putting this together, slice each variety of tomato in a different way. For instance, slice heirlooms into circles, and cherry tomatoes into halves, Early Girls in wedges to get a range of textures. Together, they create an interesting contrast of shapes, showing off the character of each variety.

Summer Tomato Salad

 
Note: This is not a super technical recipe. The amounts vary depending on the size of the plate or platter you are working with and your personal preferences. I like to go really light on the vinegar so you can taste the natural flavor of the tomatoes.

Ingredients:
A variety of tomatoes (like cherry, Early Girl, and heirloom)
Handful of salt-brined green olives, I like Castelvetrano
A splash of white balsamic vinegar
A drizzle of best-quality extra-virgin olive oil
A pinch of sea salt
Green onion, white and light green parts only, chopped
Black or red pepper

Directions:
Slice the tomatoes and simply arrange on your platter, sprinkle with sea salt. Next, add the olives and onions with a splash of white balsamic vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil. Finish with a little pepper and serve.
