This tomato salad is wonderful. Only 3 ingredients and you have a flavorful refreshing summer salad. It can be served as a side dish or as a salad.
Happy Saturday, friends! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! If you are wondering what to cook today, I have a solution for you. This tomato salad takes no more than 5-10 minutes to make and goes wonderfully with any meal.
I was traveling last week, and this past week I have been trying to catch up with everything. That’s why it has been a little bit quiet here. But I have some great summer recipes for you coming soon. 🙂
Today, I am going to share with you a simple tomato salad which is one of my go to salads. Have I mentioned that I LOVE tomatoes? They are so juicy and flavorful. I can probably eat a whole bowl of tomato salad all by myself. I can’t wait for our tomatoes in the garden to ripen. We already have several green tomatoes (and they are getting pretty big) but are still green. I have been checking on them almost every day because I just can’t wait to eat tomatoes from our garden. Have you noticed how much tastier homegrown or farmer’s market tomatoes taste? It must be because they are grown with lots of love and care. 😉 And no pesticides.
So, for this super simple and super delicious tomato salad, you will need only 3 simple ingredients. Yes, only three. Basically, you don’t have any excuse not to make this salad. 🙂 Tomatoes, red onion, and garlic. I don’t count here olive oil and salt, as they are very basic ingredients. But even if you do, you still have a salad with 5 ingredients. It doesn’t get easier than that. You can serve it as a normal salad course, or side dish to almost any meal. I like to serve it with grilled chicken or baked tilapia. Hope you enjoy it!
