Tomatoes have been my favourite food since I was a child. I was never fond of cake or hot dogs or any other normal kid food, nope I loved tomatoes. I'm sure you've noticed this based on the recipes I share, like this zucchini and tomato salad or this three bean salad, both including tomatoes. 

You can imagine then that I love this time of year when heirloom tomatoes are in season. The different colours and flavours are so lovely and perfect for a tomato and bocconcini salad!

Tomato and Bocconcini Salad

Toss together tomatoes (as many colours, shapes and sizes as possible) with a pinch of salt. This will absorb access moisture in the tomatoes, making them more flavourful. Whisk together olive oil, salt and pepper and balsamic vinegar (a few tablespoons of each). Plate tomatoes with sliced bocconcini and basil, drizzle dressing over the salad. Done!



  1. Her very first favorite food was deffinately tomatoes, followed by fried tomatoes, followed by spaghetti..!!! Moo XXX

  2. Tomatoes were always one of my favourites too! Still are, especially heirlooms with course salt. Mmmm.

    1. Yes, glad you are with me on this obsession Nicola!

  3. Anything with bocconcini has to be delicious! :)
