You might think this tomato salad with peaches and cherries looks like a dessert (and maybe it could be) but I like to serve it as a side with lunch or dinner. It goes especially well with savoury marinated tofu or tempeh and roasted potatoes. You could also use it as your centre piece at a summer barbecue and go wild with other grilled veggies along with the tofu/tempeh and potatoes.

The salad itself already has that fantastic sweet meets savoury combo though as it is served with some vegan whipped feta. It is super simple to make with just two ingredients and takes the salad to new heights so don’t leave it out. If you didn’t listen to me and left it out though (hehe) you could totally serve this for breakfast with some yogurt!

If you want more fun side salads check out the video below where you can see me make this salad as well as a Zesty Fennel Salad with Grapefruit and a Smashed Cucumber Salad.
