A new salad full of colours and lightness with this coloured tomatoes and romanesco salad! I find the tomatoes beautiful, it gives a real plus to your dish. Regarding the romanesco, this is the first time that I cook it and I found the taste very close to the broccoli and it brings some crispy to the salad. If you want to add some carbo to your meal, just add some cooked sweet potatoes.
