Try this roasted tomato salad and enjoy an explosion of textures and flavors! It’s both low calorie and rich in nutrients!

I could eat only salads and fruits all Summer and I’d be happy! Well, maybe if someone would take care I have fresh, rinsed and sliced veggies at hand. I am so lazy when it comes to making salads. I dislike the whole prepping process as I find it really boring. I like to have all veggies ready to just toss them in the salad and create the dressing – my favorite part. 🙂

Anyway, this crunchy roasted tomato salad is for those of you who are as lazy as me. It’s super easy to make. The roasted cherry tomatoes give it a special flavor which you’ll love. Since I made this Summer Veggie Salad I just can’t eat fresh tomatoes anymore.

Fresh tomatoes seem bland to me. Plus, it is known that roasted tomatoes are a lot healthier than the raw ones. Why? Well, tomatoes contain a powerful antioxidant called lycopene, which becomes even stronger when cooked. Don’t forget to drizzle them with some olive oil before roasting. Lycopene is liposoluble so this well it will assimilate a lot faster.

Hope you like it!
