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 recipes 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 tomatoes! I hope the summer tomato salads might include one or two recipes that become favorites at your house!

How long have I loved these 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 2024, 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 quite a few tomato salads here that are low enough in carbs that 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.

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.

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.
