Still on our Very Simple Salad regime we are making the retro salad of tomatoes and lettuce. Retro indeed, we grew up on this sort of salad. But there is a reason it was once so simple. It is pretty good. Use the best tomatoes possible.
Are you after other Tomato Salads? Try Tomato and Lettuce Salad with Pickles and Croutons, My Mother’s Tomato and Cucumber Salad with a Creamy Dressing, Tomato and Peach Salad, and Warm Tomato Salad. Also try Salad with Swiss Cheese and Rye.
Tomato and Lettuce Salad with Lemon
Tomatoes, lettuce, olive oil, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, finely zested lemon rind, and a little lemon juice. Add some preserved lemon, chopped, if you have it.
recipe notes and alternatives
Add anything else easily available. Here I have added avocado and some crispy flatbread as well as a few herbs.
Any pickle, chopped, can replace the preserved lemon.
Delicious as-is or eaten with flatbreads or sourdough bread.
