Multicolor Salad with Wild Rocket and Dark Tiger Tomatoes

A healthy and delicious multicolor salad with wild rocket and tasty dark tiger tomatoes.

I love tomatoes, good tomatoes, tomatoes that smell like a real tomato. Nowadays, it’s getting more and more difficult to find organic good quality tomatoes in Spain – yes, in Spain, the land of the Mediterranean diet, the land of delicious fresh vegetables… Ironically sad, isn’t it?-  One can find hundreds of beautiful perfect tomatoes that taste… nothing at all. It’s so frustrating!

Fortunately, a few months ago I found a tiny shop in my neighborhood selling real smell-and-taste-like tomatoes. The best of all is that you can taste them before you buy them, isn’t it great? It’s my favourite tomato shop ever.

A few days ago I went there and tried some delicious dark tiger tomatoes, so yummy!! Therefore, despite the cold weather these days I decided to treat myself with a multicolor salad so as to eat my beautiful tomatoes. The perfect way to go back to work this 2013 with a smile!
