Cherry Tomato and Green Onion Salad

June 21, 2012

This salad unfailingly makes its appearance at my table every week. Made with perfectly ripened cherry tomatoes, tightly chopped green onions and a handful of cut up cilantro, it is both refreshing and simple.

And if you're daring enough, you can kick it up a notch and add jalapeno in there to make it pleasantly picante.

I guarantee you there won't be much left over. This salad balances a harmony of flavors that burst in your mouth and leave you craving more.

See for yourself.

Make it at your next BBQ, lunch, or gathering and you'll be hooked.

Tomato and Green Onion salad

2 16oz. containers of cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
1 bunch of green onions,  finely chopped
1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
1 jalapeno, finely chopped

for the dressing,
a generous amount of LOSP: lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper. Simple, classic, savory.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Toss with the dressing. Serve.


  1. Love this kind of salad, I used to do tomatoes, basil and balsamic every week, will try this one next.

  2. Wow, stunning photos! I totally want to add avocado to this...and that jalapeno sounds right on.

  3. this salad is beautiful and will be a nice addition to my shabbos salad repertoire -- I love the beautiful pop of color a tomato salad brings to the table. I would dress this up with multi colored cherry tomatoes

  4. I think I am going to make this for shabbat. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I sometimes make t with basil and garlic instead of cilantro and green onions. Another delicious variation.

    This salad hasn't left my Shabbat table in a long time

  6. I am not a fan of green onions, but I would give this recipe a try. It looks so lovely and simple. I also like the idea of the variation with basil and garlic.

  7. These are soooo pretty! I also posted about tomatoes this week... Great minds think alike ;-)
