Mint tomato salad

Mint Tomato Salad 

The summer is approaching with all its fury. The moment we mortals step out,  his nostrils are flaring up and he is bellowing and spitting out fire. While the temperature is rising and we mortals are almost cursing , it is time to get refreshed and the one summer herb which refreshes me instantly is the minty fresh mint leaf. Mint has this amazingly cool effect which cools down my body very quickly.

In this trying weather some fresh mint tomato salad is what I crave .Some firm  tomatoes, fresh mint leaves and a tangy dressing is all you need.  The reason I personally love making this salad is the simplicity of the recipe.

Serves 2

What one needs :-

4 firm tomatoes
2 tbsp fresh mint leaves
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Salt as per taste
Freshly ground pepper as per taste

De-seed the tomatoes and cut them in rings and then cut the ring on one side to make long thin strips of tomatoes. Clean the mint leaves and chill the tomatoes and mint leaves. Make the dressing by whisking the salt, pepper, evol and vinegar to make a thick emulsion. Toss the dressing with the salad right before serving and enjoy this summer salad.
