Make this vegan summer salad recipe with roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh green peas, plus a delicious low calorie dressing recipe.
I’m crazy about salads but I’m also super lazy and don’t like making them. Yep, I always ask somebody else to do the boring work of chopping the veggies. In this case, I made this delicious summer salad recipe myself. There wasn’t really that much work involved as it is ready super fast!
You’ll love how all the flavors blend together and the roasted cherry tomatoes is the ingredient which makes the difference. This summer salad recipe can actually made any day throughout the year. It’s a great addition to any vegetarian or meat-based recipe.
- 5-20 salad leaves – any type of salad you want, I used Romaine
- 6-7 red orach leaves – or some kind of colorful salad
- a bunch of radishes, sliced
- cherry tomatoes
- chopped parsley
- 4 strands of scallions
- half a cup of peas, steamed
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
- a lemon’s juice
- Rinse all veggies very well. Cut the salad and red orach leaves and put them in a bowl. Slice the radishes and chop the parsley and scallions.
- The cherry tomatoes can be either roasted in the oven or the stove. I prefer roasting them in a skillet on the stove as they cook a lot faster. So, all you have to do is place them in a skillet, pour some olive oil on them and cover with a transparent lid. They’ll be ready in about 5 minutes. Check if they’re moist.
- If you have fresh or frozen peas you can use a steamer and steam it for 15 minutes, or you can use canned peas.
- Make the dressing: Mix the olive oil, lemon’s juice, salt and pepper.
- Mix all ingredients together, except the cherry tomatoes and dressing. Add dressing only right before serving.
- Put the roasted cherry tomatoes on top.
