Are you as excited as I am about the beginning for summer? At the market this weekend I was so happy to see big berries, fresh leafy greens, and juicy tomatoes. Summer brings so much delicious produce, I want to buy and eat everything! This salad is a nice little summer side salad to brighten up any meal. The tomatoes are accompanied by plums and basil to make this your favorite summer salad yet. Enjoy!
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Makes 1 serving:
20 cherry tomatoes or 1 big tomato on the vine, finely chopped
10 basil leaves
6 pitted olives, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1/2 plum, finely chopped
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Take the basil leaves and roll them up. Then thinly slice them into ribbons.
Add basil leaves and all other ingredients together in a big bowl.
Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and enjoy.
This salad also keeps really well in the fridge, so you can prepare it ahead of time of a BBQ or other summer hosting.
Yay for summer!
