Simple Roasted Tomato Salad
Recipe type: salad
  • 3 ripe roma tomatoes
  • Olive oil spray
  • A few handfuls of rocket
  • 1 red onion
  • 100 grams pine nuts
  • ¼ cup mint leaves
  • 1 - 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Slice Roma tomatoes into 8 wedges each. Place onto trays lined with baking paper.
  2. Spray the tomatoes with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  3. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes - don’t turn them otherwise they lose their shape.
  4. While they are cooking, wash and dry the rocket. After I wash the rocket, I let it sit on a clean tea towel until the tomatoes are ready.
  5. Toast the pine nuts lightly in a fry pan and set aside.
  6. Measure out ¼ cup mint leaves. Thinly slice the onion.
  7. Once tomatoes are cooked, allow them to cool for 10 minutes before putting salad together.
  8. In a large bowl add the rocket, red onion and roasted tomato. Tear mint into pieces and add it to the bowl. Add half of the pine nuts. Toss lightly, then add remaining pine nuts to the top of the salad.
  9. Drizzle red wine vinegar over the salad and enjoy.
  10. This salad went beautifully with steak!
