Tomato and Herb Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette !

Once again the whole world was in waiting mode - this time arrival of the second Baby of lovely royal couple Kate and Will.....The Lindo Wing of St. Mary's hospital was at the centre of the world's attention...and the wait was over when the world received the delighted news about the birth of the baby girl, new princess, a new bundle of joy ! Cheering broke out when beautiful baby girl,  and the stunning Mummy with proud Daddy made a small appearance for the crowds and the waiting media outside the hospital.

While the world joyfully sent their best wishes and congratulations to the royal family, landmarks across the London were set to turn pink and specially lit up that evening to celebrate the royal birth. The UK is still abuzz with the news about the royal baby, but there are also some bizarre talks or theories emerging too. The most discussed one is how on earth Kate looked radiant and  so well just after 10 hours of birth, how can she walk normal with those massive heels on. We should not forget that just because Royals got nobel titles, enjoys finer things in life and getting attention from the whole world, for all these things they do pay heavy prices too, also take all the criticism  on their chin and moves on.
With great power comes greater responsibility, We don't know what they go through behind those closed doors, just to cover up any signs that they went through the labour !

New born royal princess has had a busy weekend since she arrived and made her debut for her first photocall and the family , similarly our weekend kept us busy too. As it was a long weekend, daughter ( our princess ) came to meet us, so outings were organized, chatted till late nights and obviously few rich and sinful treats were indulged, which left me with headaches, tiredness and little heartburn. So tired to cook anything for lunch next day, so we all had this simple salad but bursting with flavours.

This simple salad of sweet and juicy baby plum tomato, with fragrant herbs, chopped spring onions makes refreshing side salad or buffet dish. There is the minimalist approach in this recipe, not much labour involved and definitely this one is a keeper as everything is right about this salad,the look is so bright and beautiful, taste is so fresh and delicious, you can bet I'll be making more than a once these coming bright and warmer days !
