How to Make a Nice Tomato Salad

Recipe: Classic Tomato Salad

Summary: This salad goes with most things and is great for bbqs; I haven’t put any quantities down as it depends on how many tomatoes you have.


  • Vine Ripened Tomatoes
  • 1 Medium Red Onion
  • Basil
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper


  1. Slice the tomatoes and onions
  2. Layer the salad in a shallow bowl by placing the tomatoes, onions, torn basil leaves in turn; season each layer as you go
  3. Once you have used all of the ingredients drizzle generously with olive oil and a little balsamic vinegar

Quick notes

To make the salad look its best, use the “best” tomato slices for the top; these are the biggest ones from the middle section
