Herb And Tomato Salad With Preserved Lemons

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon preserved lemon juice, from Preserved Lemons
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted cumin seeds
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper plus 1/2 teaspoon
  • 3 to 4 large tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
  • 1 tablespoon preserving brine from Preserved Lemons
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped preserved lemon rind from Preserved Lemons
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onions
  • 1 head butter lettuce, washed, cored, and quartered, or your favorite salad mix


  • In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, preserved lemon juice, and cumin seeds. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until it is all incorporated. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper, to taste.
