There’s no other seasonal food I love more than ripe summer tomatoes, and when good tomatoes are available, I have to indulge in them even if they aren’t that low in carbs. And for years I’ve been coming up with new tomato salad recipes almost every summer, so that’s why this post now has 20 Summer Tomato Salads that are all salads I make over and over when it’s fresh tomato season!
And if you’re lucky enough to have a garden where you’re growing fresh tomatoes, you’ll definitely want to try lots of these recipes with your garden produce! I hope these Summer Tomato Salads might include one or two that will become favorites at your house!

How long have I loved Summer Tomato Salads?
This tomato salad recipe collection started as a post in 2011 with ten tomato salads. Through the years I have added more favorite salads and updated lots of the photos. The post was last updated in 2023, and these are my current favorite salads for using garden tomatoes!
Are the Summer Tomato Salads low in carbs?
Tomatoes do have some carbs, but there are definitely some tomato salads here that are low in carbs so I have tagged this round-up as low-carb. Use the diet-type icons at the top on individual recipes to see which ones don’t have too many carbs.
How do you get the complete recipe?
Just click or tap any recipe name to see the complete tomato salad recipe on Kalyn’s Kitchen.
I absolutely LOVE this Avocado Tomato Salad that has Feta cheese and an interesting tahini-balsamic vinaigrette! See some other suggestions in the post for cheese to use if you’re not a fan of Feta.
Tomato, Olive, and Fresh Mozzarella Salad uses those little balls of fresh mozzarella that are so good in salad, but if you can’t find those just cut fresh mozzarella into cubes to make this tasty salad!
I make this Summer Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese all summer long!
This Tomato Cucumber Avocado Salad came from a reader named Lisa and the simple balsamic vinegar dressing makes these ingredients shine!
Another tomato recipe I make over and over is these Grilled Zucchini Caprese Stacks (with Basil Vinaigrette drizzled over the top.)
Bacon might be the first word in the title, but fresh garden tomatoes are also essential in this Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Avocado Salad!
If you don’t like cilantro you might want to choose another salad recipe, but I could eat this Tomato Salad with Cucumber, Avocado, and Cilantro all summer long!
Marinated Tomatoes with Herb Dressing is a tomato salad recipe I got from my sister Sandee, and if you have fresh marjoram, this is a tasty way to use it but other fresh herbs can be used as well.
I’d never get tired of this Tomato Cucumber Salad with Mint and Feta!
One of the tomato salads I’ve loved for years is the Middle Eastern Tomato Salad that I learned to make from my friend Massoud. You may have had this in a restaurant where it might be called Salad Shirazi, and salads with these ingredients are made all over the middle east.
This Cherry Tomato Caprese Salad is delicious made with a combination of red and yellow tomatoes, but use all red cherry tomatoes if that’s what you have.
And this Tomato Salad with Hearts of Palm, Olives, and Feta is a salad I’ve been making since the early days of my blog!

What a wonderful selection of tomato salads! I will definitely try a few, they all look and sound so delicious! So many with feta (favorite, yum!), but I'm most curious about the one with Gorgonzola dressing. We often make a very simple tomato salad: http://www.cookiesandcarrotsticks.com/recipes/tomato-salad/. Thank you for letting us post our own as well 🙂
Glad you like the salads. Your tomato salad looks amazing; love the combo of tomatoes + parsley!
NOBODY does salads as yummy as you!
That would be great, thanks!
Kalyn, hope you don't mind if I share this link with our Farmers Market customers. I always love your seasonal recipes and…tomatoes are FINALLY here! -Downtown Farmers Market
Thanks you guys. I love being the queen of salads.
I agree with a previous comment, you are the queen of salads! I love them all!
Wow! What a lovely selections of enticing salads. Thank you!
Thanks everyone for the nice thoughts about my favorite salads. The house is mostly cleaned out now and today is the big family reunion with about 100 people. Should be fun, and a nice way to finish up that rite of passage.
Shirley, you're right. I'm making the salad with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, olives and basil for the reunion.
Kalyn, you are the queen of amazing salads, so I'm not surprised at all that you had a hard time choosing ten. I probably would have done my usual "cheat" when I do Top 10 lists and said "Top 10 Plus One (Or Two)." LOL But where does one stop? 😉 That first photo and those stacks are especially appealing to me!
Hoping that you guys are done cleaning so that you all can focus on your family reunion event! Bet one of your salads makes it on to the table. 🙂
I have saved them all, could not find one I would not like to try. thanks for sharing.
Wow, great recipes, Kalyn. I want a tomato sandwich right now!…but waaah…my green zebra tomato plant only produced 2 tomatoes so far…I will savor eating them tomorrow. Perhaps I need to repot the plant to get more tomatoes this year.
Oh BOY what a wonderful post. So timely with fresh tomato season in full bloom!
I'm already planning for next year's tomato planting, and after seeing these salads again, I know a Green Zebra plant will be in the garden next May.
Easch one had me salivating more and more!
