Elevate your garden fresh tomatoes with this healthy zesty Chimichurri Tomato Salad!
There are certain flavors that taste good on everything.
To me, chimichurri sauce is the epitome of a universal condiment.
I like to keep a homemade batch of chimichurri in the fridge all summer, to amplify quick grilled meals, or to use as a dip with veggies and pita chips.
However, we’ve recently had an endless surge of tomatoes coming out of our garden, so I’ve taken to using chimichurri as a salad dressing.
Today’s Chimichurri Tomato Salad is exactly that… Fresh sweet garden tomatoes and fresh-made chimichurri sauce.
Nothing else is needed here.
I made a small batch of chimichurri with parsley, garlic, oil, and spices. Then poured it over ripe tomato. Voila! This bold healthy Chimichurri Tomato Salad is a quick dinner time dynamo the whole family will love.
If you’ve got more tomatoes than you know what to do with, Chimichurri Tomato Salad is the answer.
