Festive Feasting - Heirloom Tomato Salad with Rockmelon

A quick and easy salad recipe using seasonal ingredients, all available at Hagen's. We use hero ingredients such as rockmelon and stunning heirloom tomatoes in this dish, which bring it incredible colour and flavour. 

Ingredients:

  • Rockmelon, finely sliced 
  • 3 heirloom tomatoes, chopped into halves and quarters
  • 1 punnet of mixed cherry tomatoes, chopped in half
  • 2 handfuls of mixed salad leaf
  • 2 shallots, finely sliced
  • 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of Mount Zero Organic Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp of Hilltop Hives Honey 
  • Mount Zero Pink Lake Salt 
  • Pepper
  • Mint, finely chopped
  • Marinated Feta in oil (vegan or normal)
  • Use the feta oil to dress the salad
  • Edible flowers to garnish (optional)
  • Dill (optional)

Method:

  1. Prep and cut all your salad ingredients.
  2. In a saucepan, add your shallots, apple cider vinegar, honey, olive oil and a pinch of salt & pepper. Sauté until the shallots soak up the liquid and they brown slightly.
  3. Start to arrange your salad in a shallow salad bowl, starting with mixed lettuce, and working from biggest ingredients, to smallest. Topping with finely mint, chopped dill and edible flowers. Drizzle with the crumbled feta and oil. Season as required.
