A simple Mediterranean-style tomato salad recipe that will rock your world! Tomatoes and red onions with fresh parsley and dill, doused in citrus and, of course Early Harvest extra virgin olive oil! Vegan. Gluten-free.
Let’s start with this confession: I use tomatoes year-round, but I anxiously await tomato season. I am as excited about tomato season as my teenage daughter is about the next new gadget or app! I have been known to buy several pounds of each tomato variety I find in just one trip to the market. And between pasta dishes; my quick roasted tomatoes; and my MUST-TRY Shakshuka, we somehow manage to quickly run out of tomatoes!
There is no shortage of tomato salad options around here. Fattoush, tabouli, or even this couscous salad, make the dinner table on a regular basis. And a new favorite is today’s tomato salad, which I made to go next these beef kabobs.
5 Ingredient tomato salad Recipe
This tomato salad recipe likely the easiest I have made to date. Tomatoes and red onions with fresh parsley and dill, doused in citrus and Early Harvest Greek EVOO! I do add some garlic for good measure. Feta cheese is optional, but always a good idea!
How to Choose Tomatoes
Although the fresh herbs here are important, the star ingredient in this tomato salad recipe is, of course, tomatoes. So the end result will depend heavily on how good your tomatoes are. Choose tomatoes that are ripe, but firm. They should be plump and heavy, and the skin should be smooth and without any bruises.
