Recipe Notes

  • Use all colors of tomatoes for this healthy tomato salad -– yellow, orange, red and green, if you can find them. 
  • If you don't like spice, omit the hot sauce.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Chop celery and slice onion or shallot and place in a large bowl. Add lemon juice, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Mix together and set aside.
  2. Combine the soy sauce or tamari, balsamic, hot sauce, garlic, celery salt and olive oil in a bowl or jar and stir to combine.
  3. Drain the liquid off of celery and onion in a colander. Press out any extra juice and place mixture back into the bowl.
  4. Add tomatoes and then the dressing, salt and pepper. Mix gently to coat the tomatoes with the dressing.
  5. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed. Sprinkle chopped parsley over the top and serve.
