Tomato, CousCous and Herb Salad

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

This easy, cold salad comes together quickly, and makes great use of late Augusts juicy tomatoes and plentiful herbs. My salad, above, is a slightly simpler version of Ottolenghi’s “Tomato Party” from his cookbook Plenty. A simple mix of regular and larger, Israeli couscous, which cooks and cool quickly. As many tomatoes as you wish (the more the better) yellow, green, orange, red, zebra – the more the merrier. And then handfuls of chopped herbs – basil, mint, oregano. Finish is with a glug of good olive oil (I’ve been loving a lemon olive oil from Olive Pressee), a good splash of balsamic vinegar (I used a black current balsamic, also from Presse) course sale, plenty of black pepper, and a well-crushed and minced clove of garlic. Viola! A perfect August salad.
