I just love fresh and quick side salads to accompany my main meals. I love a little bit of freshness to wake up my mouth every so often from the cooked food that I’m eating. Not only that, but it helps get in some fresh and raw veggies without feeling like work! I often get bored of the same old salad greens, cucumber and tomato combo which is usually what I resort, to so this salad is a welcome addition to the rotation.
It’s really simply halved cherry tomatoes, a lot of chopped fresh parsley and cilantro, some sumac for a bit of tartness and a little olive oil for some healthy fats. That’s it! And it takes maximum 10 minutes to make which means you can quickly pull it together before dinner goes on the table. Perfect!
Cherry Tomato, Parsley & Sumac Salad
- 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 cup roughly chopped parsley
- 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
- 1 1/2 tsp sumac
- 1 tbsp olive oil
In a large bowl, toss together all the cherry tomatoes, parsley, cilantro, sumac and olive oil. You can serve this right away, but it also keeps really well in the fridge if you want to make a big batch or if you want to save some for lunch the next day!
