Three-Tomato Salad Recipe

Tomatoes, tomatoes, and more tomatoes. This delicious salad recipe brings together three varieties of one of summer's healthiest fruits to make for a light but satisfying meal.

Tomatoes are rich in naturally occurring vitamin C, beta-carotene, and vitamin K. They're also abundant in lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that numerous studies indicate has the ability to reduce your risk of developing different varieties of cancer.

Although this healthy salad calls for anchovy fillets and basil, it's almost just as good without these two ingredients if you prefer not to use them or they are not readily available in your area.



5-7 plum tomatoes
8-12 cherry tomatoes
6 sun-dried tomatoes
Small handful fresh basil
2 teaspoons fresh oregano leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 anchovy fillets



Slice plum tomatoes in quarters.


Halve cherry tomatoes.

Drizzle dressing over tomatoes. Add oregano and hand-torn basil.


Enjoy this delicious and nutrient-dense three-tomato salad. The quantities listed in the ingredients section make one large salad meal.
