Why I love this French Tomato Salad Recipe
There is nothing more appetizing to me than a fresh, in-season tomato. That perfectly ripened tomato that tastes like summer as it pops in your mouth and dribbles sweet juice down your arm with each bite. As you can tell, I love tomatoes, but this particular French tomato salad recipe is one of my go-to side dishes. It’s perfect for those warm summer days when you’re looking for something flavorful, refreshing, and simple to make.
On busy days, I’ll often pair this salad with a store-bought rotisserie chicken, 5-minute grilled couscous, and some garlicky sautéed green beans (recipes coming soon!)
When are tomatoes in season?
Most of us have the option to purchase tomatoes year round but I believe these delicious fruits are best enjoyed when they’re in season.
Tomato season generally ranges from July to October, but this varies depending on where you live. Check out the Seasonal Food Guide to see when tomatoes, and other produce, are in season near you!
I find tomatoes eaten out of season to be powdery and flavorless; they just never seem to measure up to a perfectly ripened in-season tomato. Whether you decide to make this particular tomato salad in or out of season, it’s sure to keep you wanting for more.Print
