Making this tomato salad recipe, aka Tomatensalat, is such a great way to use up your fresh garden tomatoes. It really is one of those best salad recipes because it's so easy to make. Nothing really says summer like tomatoes. So juicy, healthy, and so delicious.
You can even turn this salad into a Cherry Tomato Salad by substituting halved cherry tomatoes for regular ones. Looks so pretty!
Here's a tip I got from my Mutti.
She would freeze whole cherry tomatoes. Then, when she served a steaming hot bowl of soup in the winter, she would add a frozen cherry tomato into each bowl at the last minute.
For us kids, it was fun to scoop out the soup near the frozen tomato. The soup was nicely cooled down. We had fun moving the tomato around to cool the rest of the soup.
There are so many varieties of tomatoes at the market today. There are so many different colors and types. Use this simple and easy salad to experiment with the different flavors represented by the many types.
