I'm filing this recipe away for the days ahead when we can get "real" tomatoes. What's available now are very poor imitations and I refuse to buy them, except cherry tomotoes. Somehow, they seem to retain some real flavor in their journey from where ever to us.
Best,
Susan

My Egyptian friend introduced me to cumin on tomatoes and I love it! That dish looks so cheery and inviting!

sangeeta said...

Lovely ... we make it more like a mushy salsa with the tomatoes chopped too..

The Japanese Redneck said...

That makes a pretty plate.

Looks like summer on a plate! Great salad and salsa and I like the addition of the sprouts.

I'm of the belief that tomatoes don't need any dressing. But if you're going to dress then, I can't think of a better topping than more fresh veggies.

I think that this might be especially good with heirloom tomatoes when they're in season over the late summer. We haven't had good luck with tomatoes lately. Even those from Mexico are a bit tough and flavorless.

I like the colors of the dish. It almost seems Christmas-y.

Claudia said...

Oh sigh. I can hardly wait.

We Are Not Martha said...

As a non-heat fan, there aren't many things about living in Florida that appeal to me, but this is one of them - looks delicious.

I can't wait for fresh, summer tomatoes! This looks wonderful and so flavorful.

The Food Hound said...

Oh I'm feeling summer, but it's no longer feeling like summer! Maybe if I eat fresh tomatoes, the temps will rise accordingly :)

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Oh yum! This looks delicious, I love this combination! I'm a girl who likes her veggies!

Farmchick said...

This looks divine...

Lovely salad, Velva. I put alfalfa sprouts on my salad every lunch!

If you want me to skip a season and go straight to Summer I'm fine with it. Just get rid of below 30 weather already!
