Recipe Ingredients

  • Cherry tomatoes – 200 gms.
  • Baby spinach leaves – 100 gms. or a small bunch

For the dressing –

  • Vinegar (Any variety) – 2 tablespoon
  • Olive oil – 2 tablespoon
  • Salt – To taste

How to make Cherry Tomato & Baby Spinach Salad

  • You can toss this healthy salad in a jiffy. So, to begin with making it we need to cut the cherry tomatoes into half. Keep aside in a bowl. If you don’t get cherry tomatoes, use the regular ones that you get and cut into quarters.
  • Wash the baby spinach leaves thoroughly in a strainer to remove all the impurities. Pat dry with a kitchen towel and keep aside in another bowl.
  • Now when our veggies are ready, we need to quickly make the dressing for our salad.
  • For this combine all the ingredients for dressing in a bowl and give a nice mix.
  • Divide this dressing in 2 equal portions.
  • Drizzle one portion of this dressing over the spinach and other portion over tomatoes.  Toss both the bowls.

Assembling the salad –

  • In a salad plate or bowl make a bed with spinach.
  • Then layer it with juicy tomatoes.
  • Finish your salad while pouring the remaining dressing from the bowls.

Serve immediately!

You can enjoy this crisp juicy salad as a wholesome snack or if prefer to pair with some other snacks as well, then do refer our serving suggestions.
