This Strawberry Tomato Summer Salad is a quick, light, and refreshing warm weather recipe. The perfect vegan & gluten-free appetizer or side dish.
You might be thinking strawberries and tomatoes do not go together. It is definitely not your normal combo but the flavors in this salad are so vibrant and fresh you will wonder why you've never tried this before. Inspired by one of my fav restaurants, Broa.
The key to this salad is ensuring the strawberries are perfectly sweet because no one wants sour berries. Summer is approaching so the strawberries are only going to be getting more fresh which makes this the perfect warm weather salad.
Summer salads are the best IMO. Memorial Day is the un(official) start of Summer so it is the perfect time to start enjoying our fav warm weather foods. This salad is perfect for your celebrations this weekend. I mean it is red after all!
What you need for this summer salad:
- Cherry or grape tomatoes
- Shallot (you can sub red onion here but the taste of shallots is much more mild and subtle)
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Salt & black pepper
- Fresh parsley
