With an abundance of plump Cherry Tomatoes in our backyard and the hundreds of requests I get for extra recipes within the #MeatFreeMonday collection on YouTube, I believed I’d share (whereas not “Caribbean”) a easy and scrumptious salad with you all.
1- 1 1/2 lbs cherry tomatoes (sliced in 1/2)
1/2 massive pink onion (sliced thinly)
2 tablespoon chives (chopped)
1 clove garlic (crushed)
3 tablespoon olive oil
3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt (divided)
3/4 teaspoon black pepper (divided)
2 tablespoon honey
2 sprigs thyme (leaves)
1/2 orange (juice)
1 cup bocconcini cheese (pearls)
Vital! If doing this recipe gluten free, please go although the complete checklist of components to verify they meet together with your particular gluten free dietary wants. If doing this recipe vegan, use what you usually use to exchange cheese. Be happy so as to add nuts and dried fruits to the salad if you want.
Wash and prep the components. Slice the tomatoes in half, trim off the leaves of the thyme, slice the pink onion VERY skinny, crush the garlic and provides the chives a advantageous chop.
- The tomatoes, chives and garlic had been from my garden.
Now it’s time to make the dressing. In a bowl, add the olive oil, balsamic, 1/2 of the black pepper, 1/2 of the salt, garlic, thyme leaves, honey and orange juice and whisk till mixed.
It’s time to assemble issues. Add the chopped tomatoes to your salad bowl and prime with the sliced onion, then sprinkle on the remaining salt and black pepper.
Now add the cheese (be at liberty so as to add your fav).
Pour on the salad dressing and prime with the chives. Give it an excellent combine and place within the fridge for about 20 minutes for the flavors to marinate and are available collectively (combine once more earlier than serving). This may even enable the cheese to soak in a number of the dressing.
Recent chopped basil (I’m not a fan, so whereas I do have it in my backyard, I sparingly use it) and diced cucumber is a good addition to this salad.
