This unusual salad was created after I read a recipe for a chocolate cake that included tomatoes--believe it or not!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop tomatoes into 1/4 inch chunks and drain any excess liquid.
  2. Add basil to tomatoes.
  3. In small bowl, combine olive oil, garlic powder, and poppyseeds.
  4. Hard boil the eggs and chop into 1/2 inch chunks.
  5. Toss tomatoes, basil, oil with spices, and eggs together.
  6. Beat cream on high till it is thoroughly whipped.

  8. Pour cream over salad and mix gently.

  10. Chill and serve.
  11. May garnish with sprinkles of cocoa powder and cinnamon.

I am always looking for savory chocolate dishes so I was excited at the prospect of a salad using chocolate. For me though, the salad and the dressing, individually, are very good, but together they are mis-matched. It is indeed an unusual salad, but sadly the salad mix does not complement the dressing and vice-versa, in flavors and texture.
