Tomato and Vinegar Salad

A great summer salad, especially good when you have plenty of tomatoes and cucumbers growing. Use the freshest produce as always, and make sure you use a good quality malt vinegar. If you warm it a little you will find that the honey dissolves much more easily into it.

I remember that lunch wasn’t lunch if the table was set and it didn’t have a bowl of tomato, cucumber and onion salad in the middle of it, along with a good splash of the malt vinegarĀ  Mum still serves it up with lunch and dinner – and its always polished off at a sitting. This is detoxifying and a very alkalising dish which tastes just perfect along with a green salad and potato salad. Remember to get a good quality vinegar, preferably one made from organic ingredients and be sure to buy one in a glass (and not plastic) bottle.


  • A bowl of brown malt vinegar
  • Sweeten vinegar with honey and a little water to taste
  • Slice in tomato, onion, cucumber or any combination of these.
  • Serve with a fork on to the side of your plate or on to a slice of bread
