Creamy Tomato Salad
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Sides
Serves: 4
  • 1 lb tomatoes
  • ⅓ - ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • ½ Tablespoon fresh dill and scallion, minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt, ground black pepper
  1. If you're using grape tomatoes, cut them in half. If you're using regular tomatoes, take out the seeds and chop the tomatoes as large or as small as you like.
  2. Add the sour cream and fresh herbs and mix. I also love adding cucumbers to this salad. Radishes are another great addition.
  3. The secret is not to add salt before adding the sour cream. Salt draws out moisture and your salad will be very watery if you salt it first. Season the salad with salt and pepper after you toss all the other ingredients together.
  4. Another trick you can use is to salt the tomatoes first. If you're adding cucumbers, add them too at this point. Place them over a fine mesh sieve to drain for about 20 minutes. This will get rid of most of the liquid and then you can add the herbs and the sour cream.
