    This recipe is on p. 3 in the US edition. Can substitute plum tomatoes for tiger cherry tomatoes.

    Simple and refreshing.

    Great flavors but the proportions are a little weird. Started with a third of the tomatoes and added the same ratio of most ingredients, however I needed more pomegranate (used 1/2 instead of a third) and more oregano (full amount). Delicious but I wonder if something else would be better than the oregano. Might try thyme, mint, or parsley, or a combo of thyme and oregano.

    I'm glad I took others' advice about serving size and cut the recipe in half--- this salad doesn't keep well. I used juicy, peak ripeness, heirloom tomatoes and the salad turned into a soup within 24 hours.

    I love this dish. The better the tomato the better the final result.

    Loved this so much I made it again the day after. I didn't dice the tomatoes quite as small as the recipe said - life is too short!!

    Makes heaps and I'd go a little more 'rustic' on the dice. Another winner from Ottolenghi

    Very pretty tastes delicious but makes a lot, would be enough for 6 as a side

  • dinnermints on November 01, 2014

    Tastes delicious and looks pretty, but would have to be at least twice as delicious to justify all of that tiny dicing. Also think this could serve 6.

    Indeed very long to prepare; maybe cheat with a few pulses in a food processor? That's what I will try next summer: it will be less pretty, but that's the only way there is going to be a repeat... Also, I found the vinaigrette amount too small for the quantity of vegetables, as is, the salad lacked punch to our taste.

    A very tasty and pretty salad but boy does it take a long time to dice all those tomatoes and peppers into 0.5cm dice (and I only made half quantities). I thought the flavor of the oregano leaves was a bit dominant when I bit on a leaf so I'll skip those next time. He says this serves 4 but I think it stretches to 6 as a side dish.
