Fresh Tomato Salad πŸ…

Homemade tomato salad is a super fast and delicious side that pairs well with grilled meats like chicken roast, Turkey cutlets, steak or salmon πŸ₯©πŸ–

We make this very regularly for a quick lunch side as an alternative to a fat fueled salad (although this tasty dish is full of healthy fats as well πŸ˜‰)

It’s also a great way to incorporate fresh herbs for an extra nutrient boost πŸ’ͺ🏻

Like with the others, this recipe can be scaled up to feed as many mouths as you need but for one person you need:

1) 1-2 large tomatoes πŸ…

On the vine work well but heirloom tomatoes are also a tasty option and usually contain a superior nutrient profile and are less likely to be genetically modified (plus they look so pretty). Alternatively you could use smaller cocktail tomatoes and slice those in half but I prefer the thinly sliced larger tomatoes.

2) high quality extra virgin olive oil πŸ«’ours tastes so rich and buttery, such a treat

3) green onion to taste (usually one stalk) πŸ§…

4) fresh herbs like basil, chives or parsley 🌿

5) granulated garlic πŸ§„

6) sea salt flakes and black pepper πŸ§‚

To make, thinly slice the tomatoes and the green onions and put them in a small bowl πŸ₯£

Finely the herbs and add them to the bowl.

Next, add the salt, pepper and garlic powder and drizzle everything with ample olive oil πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³

Lastly, carefully toss the salad prior to serving. The tomato juices, oil and salt will create a super yummy umami dressing. If you want to be extra fancy and can tolerate it, add a spritz of balsamic vinegar πŸ˜‰
