Team Tomato – Insalata Erbette e Tre Pomodori

I was cheering on behalf of Cucina Fintastica for Gli Azzurri yesterday to no avail. Stupid football. Stupid Uruguay team (apart from the tight compression shirts that is).

Fortunately I am also an avid supporter of another team that never fails: Team Tomato. This salad includes three types of them and with the help of avocado, feta cheese and toasted bread it doesn’t need any unjust red cards, corner kicks or skimpy outfits to become a sure winner! And who knows – maybe if somebody had offered this salad to that chap Luis Suarez before yesterday’s match, he wouldn’t have needed to sink his teeth into his fellow player…

Salad of Three Tomatoes and Herbs

Serves 4

(Wild) herbs

100 g tomatoes

100 g cherry tomatoes

100 g sun-dried tomatoes

1 avocado (+ some lemon juice)

100 g feta cheese in cubes

extra virgin olive oil

balsamic vinegar

some slices of white bread

Chop the herbs and slice the tomatoes and the avocado (squeeze some lemon juice onto the avocado slices). Mix all ingredients together and season with oil and vinegar (+ salt & pepper) to your taste. Toast the bread. I used the bread as “croutons” but you can also serve it on side with some oil and vinegar.
