  • 12 oz ripe cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 2 TBSP quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBSP red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion (adjust as desired)
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 TBSP fresh chopped parsley

OPTIONAL EXTRAS: Take the super simple recipe above and add....

  • 1/2 chopped cucumber
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Grab your tomatoes and get chopping! Cut into halves or fourths. 
  2. Toss tomatoes with olive oil, vinegar, green onion, and red onion. 
  3. If you're adding the optional (and DELICIOUS!) cucumber and feta add it here.
  4. Season with salt and pepper, then give it a taste. Adjust ingredients if desired (I love adding extra onion and feta)
  5. Mix in some fresh parsley to garnish and dig in!

Recipe Notes

This sassy side salad makes a great topping for grilled chicken and tastes fabulous stuffed into a pita with falafel and tzatziki! It also makes a glorious addition to your next party, potluck, or picnic and tastes great alongside pretty much everything!

I even love it served on a fluffy baked sweet potato or atop a fresh pasta salad. Have fun with it!
