Tomato Salad 番茄沙拉


This tomato salad was introduced by Chef James from Taiwan. It is very simple to prepare. Tomato is well known for its nutritional value as natural medicine to bring down the blood pressure. Hence, this salad is good for those who has high blood pressure.

I served this salad with home roasted chicken. It’s yummy!

great to see tomato used as the main ingredient instead of supporting role most of the time

When taken raw, tomato is high in Vit.C too; and when cooked, high in lycopene. I love tomato!
