      What is the best season to make this recipe?

      Tomatoes are available year-round in many regions, but their peak season is during sunny summer months. The sweetness and juiciness of ripe pink heirloom tomatoes during this time ideally complement sharp flavors of garlic, creating the perfect balance that’s hard to replicate.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      I usually buy red cherry tomatoes or black cherry tomatoes at the farmer’s market, where you can find the best quality ingredients.

      And fresh garlic bulbs can be found in the vegetable section of most grocery stores. Consider organic and locally grown options.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?

      Sure! Flexibility will give your cooking experience a new twist:

      • Tomatoes: you can mix in salad some yellow or orange tomatoes which also give juiciness and sweet flavor to the dish. If you don’t have black cherry tomatoes for the salad, you can substitute them with any other tomatoes, or even skip them. The more tomato types you add – the richer the salad will be.
      • Garlic: I like to have raw garlic in my salad, but if raw garlic is too spicy for you, you can lightly sauté it in sunflower oil for a milder flavor.
      • Herbs: A thingly chopped parsley gives a lot of flavor, but you can substitute it with fresh mint or even basil. They will both work.

      Can you make this salad part of a menu?

      Absolutely! Pair it with Roasted Turkey Breast with Spices to get a satisfying meal.

      Also, you can serve it with the inviting Veal Patties.

      For a vegetarian version, consider making my Creamy Corn Polenta.

      Which drinks pair well with this dish?

      To emphasize the flavors of the Garlic Tomato Salad, choose beverages that complement the fresh and tangy taste of it.

      Amazing white wine like Encruzado or a light rosé will harmonize beautifully with the tomatoes and garlic.

      For a non-alcoholic option, serve sparkling water infused with a splash of lemon or orange juice.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      It is better to consume Garlic Tomato Salad while it’s fresh. But if you need to, you can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

      Recipe Tips & Tricks

      • Slice: This salad asks for slicing the bigger tomatoes into rounds. Cherry tomatoes can be cut into halves.
      • Chill Before Serving: Try refrigerating the salad for about 15-20 minutes before serving. This will the flavors to meld together and the garlic to infuse properly.
