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 I originally made this salad in July when we had buckets full of fresh tomatoes.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.
- 5 tomatoes, chopped
- 3 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
- handful mint leaves
- 1 onion
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil
- salt to taste
- Wash your tomatoes and the mint leaves, peel the onion.
- Chop the tomatoes, the onion and mint.
- Add them to a bowl, add olive oil and salt to taste.
- Serve immediately.
