A simple mix of tomatoes, lemon juice, salt and oil is my favourite salad at the moment. I love the sharp acidity of it. All I need is some fresh bread to accompany it and I'm a happy man. Galit added the optional ingredients below and made a real marvel.
1 lemon, juice only
2 tablespoons olive oil
[Optional] 1 1/2 teaspoons za'atar spice mix *
- Mix in a bowl
300 grams tomatoes, chopped (halved cherry tomatoes are great)
[Optional] 3 spring onions, chopped
[Optional] 1/2 cup pine nuts and/or pumpkin seeds
[Optional] 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
- Add to bowl and stir
* Za'atar is a mixture of thyme, sumac and sesame seeds. You can substitute a mix of marjoram, thyme and/or oregano.
