Make this super fresh tomato mint salad with your lunch or dinner today! This healthy salad is the perfect side dish that goes with pretty much anything – meat, fish, rice or legumes!

Well if you like mint. This tomato salad is great if you have a lot of tomatoes you want to use up ASAP.
How To Make Tomato Mint Salad
Could not be easier! You basically need to do these 5 simple things to make this salad:
- wash the tomatoes and mint
- peel the onion
- chop all your vegetables
- put them in a bowl
- add olive oil and salt
It should take you about 10 minutes max, and you won’t have a pile of dishes to clean up.
Tomato Mint Salad Ingredients
Tomatoes. Use fresh and ripe, juicy tomatoes. I originally made this salad in July when we had buckets full of fresh tomatoes.
Mint. Don’t get me wrong, when you have juicy tomatoes, this salad would taste good even if you don’t add anything to it. But adding that mint gives it a nice, new freshness and flavor.
Sesame seeds. Toast some sesame seeds for even more flavor! I originally started toasting tomatoes when I was pregnant and was trying to avoid salt. It works and it tastes sooooo good – I still do it.
Onion. Use a small onion here, it’s always a good addition to tomato salads.
Olive oil. Why overcomplicate things with making a dressing? The mint, onion, tomatoes and sesame seeds add enough flavor to this salad and it’s completed, not masked, with the addition of some olive oil.
Okay, now let’s get more specific.
I really hope you give this salad a try! It has become one of my favorites and I now make it almost every single day at lunch!
