German Tomato Salad (Tomatensalat)

german tomato salad recipe basil dill onions herbs vinaigrette

This is a fresh and vibrantly flavorful Summer tomato salad that is typical of the ones I know and love from Germany.  Simple, quick and as easy as 1, 2, 3, all you have to do is cut up the tomatoes, onions, and herbs, prepare the vinaigrette, and pour the vinaigrette over the salad.  And even if you’re not a huge tomato fan, you may just change your mind once you’ve tried this salad!

This is a simple salad but there are two vital keys to getting it right:  Use fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes and use fresh herbs.

Fresh herbs are an absolute must.  You can use a variety of fresh herbs but fresh basil is a must.  In addition, fresh dill is divine.  And of course who can live without parsley?

Tomato-Salad-prep-2

Simply chop up the tomatoes and onions.  Sometimes I’ll dice them, other times cut the tomatoes into strips, whichever you prefer.  Place them in a non-reactive bowl like glass and add the chopped herbs.

Whisk together the vinaigrette until emulsified.

Pour the vinaigrette over the salad and stir to combine.  Let the salad sit in the fridge for at least one hour (or several) before serving.
