Tomato, Red Onion & Coriander Salad

Tomato & Red Onion Salad with Coriander

Sometimes less is more with food and this Tomato, Red Onion & Corinder Salad is certainly testament to that. I’ve not really been feeling the salad vibe recently with the weather being so atrocious but whenever we have curry I always make this salad as an accompaniment . If you can make it in advance all the better to allow the flavours to mingle but I have to admit that I often just throw it together whilst cooking and enjoy any leftover the next day!

I was recently sent the new Oxo Little Salad & Herb Spinner  which has undergone a bit of a makeover. I have to say it was brilliant for spinning my coriander and is also big enough to spin enough lettuce to make an average sized green salad. The rubberised base makes it literally stick to the work surface and the plunger makes spinning simply effortless. The braking is now almost instantaneous and the re-design from sloped to straight sides means that it is more space efficient and easier to store. In fact the bowl is so smart if you’re pushed for space in your cupboards I would use the bowl to serve the salad in too.

Oxo Herb & Salad Spinner & Good Oil

The Good Oil company also sent me a sample of their Hemp Seed Oil recently and I have to say aside from all the wonderful health giving properties it has which you can read about on their web site, I really enjoyed the nutty, earthy flavour it imparted to the salad. Did you know that just 1 tablespoon gives you 94% of your daily recommended intake of Omega 3? In fact it has so many health benefits I’m surprised it’s not available on prescription! It’s not just for making salad dressings though and can be used in the same way as olive oil.

Tomato, Red Onion & Coriander Salad

As this salad has coriander in it I am entering it into this month’s Herbs on Saturday which is run by Karen at Lavender & Lovage and being hosted by Anneli at Delicieux this month. I am also entering Made with Love Mondays hosted by Javelin Warrior’s Cookin w/Luv as this salad is made from scratch.

    1. Camilla

      Yes and a favourite with curry at any time of year:-)

  2. Jane Davies

    Love the idea of coriander in the salad, for us it’s normally oregano but will have to try this one !

  3. Kaci Soderstrom

    Never really thought about putting these ingredients together for a salad. I always stick with a really generic salad.. so this is a nice spin on it. Thanks!

  4. Jane Middleton

    Nice and healthy, will have to try this sometime.

  15. Annie Costa

  16. Debbie Godbolt

    interesting blog i didnt think hemp oil could be used in cooking i thought it was just for beauty products lol 🙂

  17. Samantha Fernley

    I love refreshing salads like this. Always a pot of corriander on my windowsill although it’s currently looking a little sorry for itself.

    1. Camilla

      Coriander is one herb that I can never keep going on the windowsill but Basil aslways keeps going!

  18. Javelin Warrior

    Love the combination of red onion with tomato, Camilla! And such a beautiful combination of fresh and bright colors. I also have a salad spinner which I do love, although I’ve been buying a lot of pre-washed organic greens recently and not washing :/

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Mark, I couldn’t live without a salad spinner since my husband bought me one about 20 yrs ago. Now I have the big and little Oxo ones and they’re such a breeze to use:-)

  19. Jacqueline @How to be a Gourmand

    Nice and fresh Camilla! Makes a lovely side order – that oil looks really good too!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jacqueline, it is a nice zingy salad!

  20. Anneli (Delicieux)

    I LOVE tomato salads and I like that yours uses coriander rather than the more typical basil. Hemp Seed Oil sounds really good too. I will have to seek some out! Now I just need some sunshine to go with your salad! Thanks for entering Herbs on Saturday Camilla 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Anneli, lets hope summer arrives soon!

  21. Joanne Blunt

    That is so simple but sounds lovely. I love coriander. Thanks for mentioning the oil too; I’ll have to get some of that.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, good food doesn’t have to be complicated does it!
