Tomato Cheese Salad



Tomato Cheese Salad

Summer is in full swing. Going the salad way is becoming a regular routine at home. We had an abundant harvest of tomatoes this year. Tomato pickle was prepared last week. Today, I prepared an easy, breezy, cheesy, super simple tomato salad using little cubes of cheese and cucumber. Variations can include paneer, tofu or cheese of your choice. Loved the combination and the addition of cheese enticed my 8 year old as well as the boiled egg quarters you see in the plate. He loves eggs. :)

De-seed 2 large tomatoes and dice. Peel and dice 2 cucumbers. Cut a cheese cube into small pieces. In a bowl, whisk 1 1/2 tbsps olive oil, a large pinch of powdered sugar, crushed pepper, pinch of salt and a tbsp of chopped coriander leaves or mint leaves. Add the diced tomatoes, cucumber and cheese to the bowl and mix well. Chill and serve.

    Sailu, this was by far the tastiest salad I’ve ever made – I just made this in a jiffy (skipped the sugar though) & it disappeared in the same speed!! Yummy & refreshing, truly!. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    • Sailu says:

      I’m glad you liked it, Shireen. Sugar is purely optional. I added a pinch to cut the tartness of tomatoes.
