Spinach and Roasted Tomato Salad

Spinach and tomatoes are a heavenly combination especially with some crunchy red onion to liven things up. Robust and hearty, this salad is spot on with some simple pasta, maybe with a pesto or anchovy sauce? Even with lots of mustard-ey dressing this is still a very healthy and nutritious side.


  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Red Onion
  • Chives
  • Vinegar & Oil to dress

Pre-heat your oven to 180˚c

Cut up the Tomatoes into chunks and lay out on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper

Brush the Tomatoes with a small amount of Olive Oil and then sprinkle with Salt

Given them 30 – 40 minutes or until looking quite ‘dried’ – but not too burned!

Wash and lay out the Spinach on a plate.  Slice some Red Onion and lay out over the Spinach.  When cool, top with the Roasted Tomatoes

Use some chopped fresh Herbs (Chives?!) and a dash of Raspberry or Red Wine Vinegar to spice up the Salad – also a little drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Served with Lamb this is delicious – the Salad would also work well with some Spinach Nuggets or some Squash Dumplings
