Here's a beautiful tomato salad, perfect for summer time!
Yum

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!

Super Tomato Idea ...

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.

Tomatoes ...

  • Tomatoes are actually a fruit and not a vegetable.
  • High in vitamin C, they also contain vitamin A, potassium, and iron.
  • Notable is the high lycopene level. (Lycopene appears to act as an antioxidant that is beneficial for our cells.)

There are so many varieties of tomatoes at the market now a days. All different colors, shapes and types. Use this simple salad recipe to experiment with the different flavors represented by the many kinds available today.

Need some more recipes for tomatoes? Have too many cherry tomatoes in your garden?

Then try an unusual vegetable dish such as baked squash with tomatoes or just simply baked tomatoes. But first, eat them fresh in this salad!
