Cherry Tomato & Fresh Herb Salad

Cherry Tomato & Fresh Herb Salad

Here is a fresh little salad to serve aside one of our tasty steaks while the weather’s hot. If you have a vegetable patch like me, you may well also have an abundance of tomatoes, basil, parsley and oregano right now that you’re looking for ways to use! If not, you may find some tasty, in season tomatoes at the markets at this time of year.

I love the freshness of herbs in this salad.  I made this for dinner last night and it took 5 minutes tops.

  • 750g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano

Halve the cherry tomatoes and place in a bowl.

In another small bowl, place the oil, vinegar, salt and sugar and whisk or stir.  You can also place these ingredients in a jar, place the lid on and shake – a great way to make salad dressings.

Sprinkle the chopped herbs over the tomatoes and stir. Pour the dressing over the tomato mix and stir again.

It’s ready for serving! This recipe can also be made in advance and left to marinate overnight.
