Tomato Basil Salad #lowfodmap #tararochfordnutrition

I truly am a vegetable lover, but I often stick to preparing vegetables in a similar way when it comes to regular weekly meals. It’s easy to forget how simple it is to use a slightly different spice, vinegar or oil to season a vegetable so you have a totally different than normal outcome. That’s how this Tomato Basil Salad was created!

So simple and filled with the freshness of summer, this tomato basil salad is a super simple side dish or can be used as a bruschetta (just place on top of your favorite crusty bread) – it’s delicious both ways.

Tomato Basil Salad Tips

  • It takes a little bit of time to quarter the cherry tomatoes, but their sweetness (especially during peak summer ripeness) makes it worth it. If you have larger tomatoes, feel free to use those instead!
  • This recipe is so simple, because once the tomatoes and basil are cut to size you just whisk the salad dressing together then combine everything in a bowl. Doesn’t get much easier than that.
  • This recipe is considered low FODMAP if you watch your portion size. 75g or about 5 cherry tomatoes is considered low FODMAP, but if you up that by quite a but to 220g or 16 cherry tomatoes, the recipe will contain moderate amounts of Fructan. This is based on information from the Monash University app.
