Tomato Salad

I know its been a while...just gathering up lots of yummy real food recipes to share with you. This salad is courtesy of my super awesome sister-in-law, and its hugely delicious. Its great for tomato and mushroom enthusiasts, but Big D. is a tomato-hater, and he loves this salad. He believes the tomatoes are just a vehicle for the dressing, which makes an awesome dip. Whatever floats your boat, man! Its just really good, ok?

Tomato Salad
5 garlic cloves, diced
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
3 tablespoons vinegar
1teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon basil
1 bay leaf
Shake of black pepper

1 box cherry tomatoes, halved
1 box mushrooms, sliced

Combine all dressing ingredients together in container and shake well. Add the mushrooms, and let marinated for at least an hour. Add the tomatoes right before serving. 


  1. Mmmm, looks terrific! I've only used bay leaves in cooked dishes, so this is interesting. Definitely going to make it when I can get my hands on some (cheap) fresh mushrooms.

  2. Tali- the original recipe actually does not call for mushrooms. I just add them because I love marinated mushrooms :)

  3. Firstly, I'm really enjoying your site. Most importantly, I'm so happy to see a wholesome recipe. Would love to see more of the healthy kind!

  4. Wholewheat- thank you :) I know its very disillusioning seeing all these baked goods on my blog, but honestly I try hard to eat healthy, and I give away all the baked goods. Cant say the same about my husbands work :) For a while, I posted Real Food Wednesday posts, and I stopped during the summer. I hope to start again now, and those are usually pretty healthy- real food :) Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Ditto on the healthy food! But the baked stuff is sooo pretty. :)

  6. The tomato salad was excellent. All my guests loved it, as did I.

  7. We really enjoyed this over shabbos, thanks for the recipe!
