We harvested some beautiful ripe heirloom tomatoes, i.e. Green Zebra & Black Russian which got made into a lovely refreshing tomato salad using a recipe adapted from Sarah at Martha Stewart’s website..

Spiced Heirloom Tomato Salad 1


  • 4 beef tomatoes, core removed, cut into chunky wedges
  • 1 green jalapeno, seeded & minced (I used 4 homegrown purple chilli padi)
  • 1 lemon, zested & juiced into 1-2 tbsp
  • 2 tbsp peeled & minced fresh ginger

  • timetable


      Serves 4
      Prep time 10 mins

      1. Put tomatoes into a large bowl.
      2. Add in all ingredients straight into bowl and stir gently to mix.
      3. This salad can be prepared earlier and kept in fridge till ready to eat. It’d taste better if let sit to marinate and absorb full flavour of all ingredients.
