Raspberry & Tomato Salad

raspberrysalad

Today’s beauty of a salad is inspired by and adapted from the Plenty cookbook. Plenty,  Plenty MoreNopi and Jerusalem, all by Ottolenghi, are among my favourite cookbooks, and are great for making extremely flavourful meals while transitioning towards a more plant-based diet – I highly recommend them! 🙂

Fresh and local tomatoes and berries yield the best results! This salad is naturally sweet and makes for great eye candy! 😉
