How To Make tomato salad

  • 1
    Bring a pot of water to boil. Drop in tomatoes. Leave 30 seconds then immerse in cold water to peel skins off.
  • 2
    Trim out the tomato core and using a spoon or melon scoop, scoop out interior. (I freeze it for later to add to soup.)
  • 3
    Turn upside down to drain out juice. Mix rest of ingredients in a bowl.
  • 4
    Put lettuce leaf into your salad bowl or dish or plate. Put tomato on top. Fill with salad. Serves 4
