My simple salad recipe is sliced tomatoes dressing with lemon juice, olive oil and a pinch of salt. It becomes very delicious if the tomatoes are mixed with freshly chopped coriander and/or fennel.

Sounds lovely. Sometimes the simplest dishes are the best, aren't they?

Just a couple of language suggestions:

Do you mean a pinch of salt?  Fruits and herbs can come in bunches, but the word we use for salt is a 'pinch' (it's the amount we can hold between the thumb and forefinger).

I'd also say freshly chopped coriander - 'minced' seems too fine.

And now for a culinary suggestion - have you tried rubbing a clove of garlic around the bowl first?

@Su.Ki.

Your definition of "a pinch" of something is what I've always understood as "a pinch."  I've come across explanations of "a pinch" in certain cookbooks that describe it as how much you can hold with your thumb, index finger and middle finger!  That would be a substantial difference in the amount.  Maybe we should all just season to taste.

You should try to add basil to your salad. Tomato & basil are the best friends ;)

Thank you for your comment and corrections. I exactly meant to write a pinch of salt. The salad would be too salty if I added a bunch of salt  =]. Thank you for the culinary trick. I haven't tried this before and I'd like to do so.

Thank you for sharing your salad recipe. It sounds very tasty. But If I prepare it, I will not use chili or chili powder, because I am not a friend of  spicy food :).

People make different types of salads here, but I like this one:) Sliced (tomatoes, onion, carrot, cucumber, green chili), all mixed with curd. then to give it a spicy&hot flavor, you need to add some black salt, cumin powder, coriander powder, mango powder, a bit chili powder and in the end, garnish it with coriander leaves.:)
