Cherry Tomato, White Balsamic Vinegar and Basil Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by KWB5015

This salad is really simple (and you can probably substitute whatever vinegar you have, making it even more simple) and delicious. I didn't precisely measure my ingredients, so you can start with smaller quantities and make it 'to taste' if you don't have my sour tooth!

Loved this for a side dish to our chicken salad. First time finding white balsamic and loved it. I didn't have cherry tomatoes so used regular ones and chilled it for 4 hours then added the basil at the last minute.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice tomatoes in half and put into a medium sized bowl.
  2. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt, dress with vinegar and oil and toss together.
  3. Cut basil leaves into chiffonade (roll leaves together as if making a cigar and run your knife perpendicular through at very thin intervals--the result will be little strips of basil).
  4. Sprinkle basil over tomatoes, add pepper, toss and serve.
  5. Notes: I thought that the salad tasted the best after a few hours. The downside is that your basil can turn a little dark. I'd still say it is worth letting the salad mascerate for a couple hours--maybe adding basil leaves in an hour before serving.
