This fresh, summery salad is a great accompaniment to a healthy meal. Whether it's a cottage-cheese stuffed chicken breast, a seared tuna steak, or a tasty beef fillet, this salad does the trick. What I love most is the beautiful colours of the different tomatoes, which add a subtle sweetness to the salad. Tomatoes are vibrant fruits with many health benefits. They are packed with antioxidants as well as vitamins A, C and K. Enjoy this salad on it's own or as a side and don't be shy to try it out as a guest-impressing dish.
For the salad:
Mix all the small tomatoes and split into 2 groups.
In the first batch, half the tomatoes. The second batch can stay whole. (This gives a lovely depth to the salad and makes it more visually appealing)
Place all the tomatoes, capers and spring onion/red onion in a serving dish.

For the dressing:
Combine all ingredients in a small bottle.

Drizzle dressing over salad ingredients and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
Toss and season with salt and pepper.

When ready to serve, add micro-greens and toss.
