Italian Style Tomato Salad

A tomato salad was always my Nana's favorite. We would mostly have this for lunch. I remember her asking me "Do you want a tomato salad for lunch?" I miss her so much and treasure all of her memories.



  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon shallot, minced
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/3 cup large fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained


  1. In a bowl whisk olive oil, vinegar, salt and shallot together.

  2. Add in tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, basil leaves and capers. Then combine together.

  3. Just add all of the ingredients in a serving platter or serving bowl and enjoy!
