Marinated Tomato Salad with Garlicky Paprika Vinaigrette

Marinated tomato salad – fresh, flavourful tomatoes drizzled with a garlic paprika vinaigrette and sprinkled with fresh herbs. Delicious and lovely.


  • 6 medium tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp fresh herbs (oregano, basil, chives…)


  • 2 tsp spice mix (see recipe below)
  • 1 tsp Crosby’s Fancy Molasses
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Salt & pepper

Spice mix

  • 2 ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼½ tsp dried chipotle pepper or cayenne
  • 1 tsp dried thyme


  1. Slice the tomatoes and lay them in a dish that’s deep enough to accommodate the marinade without it dribbling over the sides.
  2. Pour over the marinade and let the flavours blend for a couple of hours. Sprinkle with herbs before serving.
  3. If you’d like to make this a bit more substantial nestle some slabs of feta in among the tomatoes. Or you can serve grilled feta on the side.



*You’ll have way more marinade than you need so save the extra to use as a salad dressing.
