Curried Tomato Salad Recipe

Curried Tomato Salad Recipe

Garden-fresh summer tomatoes are such tender globes of sensual perfection, but this great recipe will work magic even on those tasteless pink tennis balls from the supermarket.

Red onion, curry powder and fresh parsley make this vitamin-C-rich salad a luscious feast for the senses.


3 tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 large red onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
3/4 cup mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise substitute
1/4 cup minced parsley
1 tablespoon curry powder
Loose-leaf lettuce

1. Combine the onions and tomatoes in a bowl. Add the salt and pepper, and chill the mixture well.

2. In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, parsley, and curry powder. Add the curry dressing to the tomato mixture, and mix well. Spoon the tomato-onion mixture onto lettuce leaves, and serve immediately.

Serves 6.

I don't know, Annie, curry and tomatoes? I do put tomatoes in my vegan curry. Maybe I'll try it. Cheers :)

Even supermarket tomatoes taste better if you don't put them in the fridge.
