Our awesome team from the Sense of Taste School  Chef Peter and Chef Byron – have come
up with this simple yet amazing tomato salad. It’s fresh, wholesome, easy to make –
simplicity at its best. All you need to do is just add salt.  We think it is perfect company for a
braai or a grilled chicken breast.

Serves 4 to 6

  • 1 large red onion finely chopped
  • 3 x large tomatoes cut into wedges (if available, we love to use Israeli tomatoes for this recipe)
  • 1 x punnet of Italian tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 x punnet of baby cherry tomatoes – kept whole
  • 1 x small red chilli finely chopped if you don’t have ¾ teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • 1 cup of fresh coriander finely chopped plus a good handful of fresh coriander roughly chopped for garnishing
  • ½ cup of Morgenster Lemon infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil (we love Morgenster – and it is local)
  • ½ English Cucumber – chopped – bite size piece
  • 100g roasted salted peanuts roughly chopped


    • Place the onions, tomatoes, chilli, cucumber and coriander into a bowl and pour over Olive Oil – and JUST ADD ORYX DESERT SALT
    • Mix gently so that everything nicely mixed.
    • Season generously with ORYX DESERT SALT and ORYX DESERT PEPPER
    • Stir so that everything is mixed and coated with Lemon infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
    • Cover and allow to stand for 10 to 15 min at room temperature
    • Before serving mix again – sprinkle with the chopped peanuts and coriander

    Bon Appetite!
