Tomato Salad With Lemon and Cilantro

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Oolala

Another magazine find. The lemon rind and juice get utilized in this salad. I love the lemon oil fragrance in the lemon skin! I had it as a side dish with shrimp scampi and it went well. Nice with sea salt.

I did not have any cherry tomatoes so I used large ones. This is such a flavourful salad and is ready in no time. Thanks for the recipe.
