2 tomatoes,
1 tablespoon chopped pistachios,
1 tablespoon sesame seeds,

for the dressing:
bunch mint,
juice of half a lime (or lemon),
1 tablespoon lime or lemon zest,
2 tablespoons olive oil.

As odd as it may sound, this in an absolutely fantastic combination, a salad with mint dressing is very tasty and refreshing, the addition of pistachios and sesame seeds are optional but I think they make the dish much nicer.



1. Make the dressing. Finely chop the mint leaves. Add the lemon juice.


2. Grate the zest from the lime or lemon.


3. Add the zest to mint. Season with salt and pepper.


5. Layer the salad onto a plate, first the lettuce, then the tomato chopped into small cubes.


6. Add the dressing, mix well. Pour some olive oil over the salad, mix again.


7.Add the lightly toasted sesame seeds and pistachios, stir again. Voila! The salad is ready.

Bon Appetit!
