On a hot summer day, nothing hits the spot like some fresh fruit. But when you’re sick of sweetness and you don’t want to just eat raw vegetables, a salad is the next best thing. There’s lots of great options for salads, but you probably want something nice and refreshing, that’s just as juicy as fruit would be. For that craving, the perfect recipe is this easy tomato salad. It’s got a nice kick from garlic and juiciness from cherry tomatoes.


  • Bowlful of cherry tomatoes, rough-chopped
  • 3 or 4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 bushel of parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Make the Salad

Once you’ve prepared all the ingredients, you’ve already done the easy part! Just combine the tomatoes, parsley, and garlic in a bowl. Then dress the salad with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. If you want to spice things up a little more, try mixing in a tablespoon or two of balsamic vinegar. If you wish to add protein, you can also turn this into a twist on a caprese with some fresh mozzarella cheese. Serve as a side dish or as a snack. Enjoy!
