This is an adaptable recipe. You could add chopped eggs, peas, or bacon or even change the ham to chicken or tuna! Substantial enough to be lunch, alone!

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
