Tomato salad

Heirloom tomato salad

Tomato salad, especially when made with homegrown heirloom tomatoes, is one of my favourite summer comfort foods; it is unpretentious, yet satisfying. The best part always is the juice and cream mixture left in the bowl, it hits the umami spot perfectly. No shame in slurping it down!

Tomato salad


  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1 spring onion, small salad onion or some chives
  • 3 tbs sour cream
  • salt and pepper


  1. Cut tomatoes in bite size pieces.
  2. Finely chop onion (or slice spring onion).
  3. Mix tomatoes, onion and sour cream together.
  4. Season well with salt and pepper.
  5. Enjoy with a slice of buttered white bread.


Ripe heirloom tomatoes in room temperature work best - I used different type and colour (red, yellow, black) tomatoes grown in my garden for a mix of tastes and textures. For more juicy results, let the salad sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
