Spiced Heirloom Tomato Salad

20 Jul

Summer is pure joy for vegetable and fruit lovers. I can not get enough  of luscious heirloom tomatoes  while they are their ripest. I have fun trying different seasonings to keep my husband from getting bored with salads. This dressing uses mediterranean spices. I use a lot of these same spices on my roasted zucchini recipe which we enjoy.

Dressing: Mix all of the ingredients together and set a side.

  • 1/2 tsp groung coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbs warm water
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 2 tbs olive oil


  • 1 pound of heirloom tomatoes, cut into wedges
  • arugula or mixed greens
  • fresh basil
  • slivered almonds

Mix the tomatoes and basil with the dressing. Put arugula on plates and top with the tomato mixture and top with slivered almonds.
