Insalata di Pomodori

Insalata di Pomodori, or Tomato Salad, is my own creation born out of too many tomatoes! (Other recipes are out there, this one is my own.) It also happens to be my husbands’ favourite salad. This is a very easy to make, and refreshing on a hot summers’ day. The way I make this salad is to marinate the tomatoes in olive oil, vinegar, herbs and spices. Of course, you can always personalize it to your own taste. Don’t like oregano?Leave it out. I did it a little differently this time, by adding some cold, cooked shrimp suitable for mealtime.

Have too many tomatoes? Make Insalata di Pomodori! Your taste buds will be glad you did.


4 large tomatoes, chopped in 1/2” dice
1 small onion, chopped in 1/4’ dice
1 clove garlic, finely minced or use 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup good quality olive oil
2 Tbl. Balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. Italian seasoning or a mixture of Italian herbs equal to 1 tsp, such as basil, oregano, marjoram, rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste

And if you really want to gild the lily: 2 Tbl. pignoli or pine nuts.  Expensive but tasty little nuggets.
